The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus provides a diverse body of students with opportunities to enhance their education, careers and futures. Part of the highly-reputed University of Colorado System, this dynamic institution enriches the Denver metro area and the state of Colorado through top-notch education, innovative research and powerful partnerships.
The University of Colorado has been a leader in higher education and research in the Rocky Mountain region for 134 years. The CU System legacy for academic excellence, innovation and discovery thrives at three institutions in four locations: Boulder, Denver, Auraura and Colorado Springs.
Many paths have led to the current University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus. The health sciences component began with the establishment of the School of Medicine on the Boulder campus in 1883. The Denver Campus originated in 1912 as an extension of the University of Colorado at Boulder.
In summer 2004, the University of Colorado Board of Regents voted to combine the Anschutz Medical Campus with its Denver campus. The impetus was the university's vision of creating a "21st Century" university that facilitated multidisciplinary learning and research.
The university distinguishes itself with a commitment to discovery, innovation, diversity and the health and care of mind, body and community.
