50 YEARS OF

ONWARD AND UPWARD

Throughout the year, we’ll focus on today and tomorrow, while glancing back on how far we’ve come. It’s time to honor our heritage, celebrate our evolution, and prepare for the future. Help make our 50th anniversary a success. Join us for in-person events, engage with our vibrant community, and share your CU Denver story.

LOOKING BACK
AS WE MOVE FORWARD

A 50th Anniversary Message from Chancellor Michelle Marks.

Who we educate and how we educate has and must still evolve alongside a changing society—meeting learners’ needs across their lifespan and matching the programs we offer to the knowledge and talent our communities, organizations, and industries need to thrive. CU Denver’s incredible progress and impact over the last five decades has been possible because we have consistently worked together in service of our students and their success.

Mark your calendars: we can’t wait to see you.
