"CU Denver is the essential institution to meet this moment. We're a pioneer of inclusive learning. We're young and innovative, embodying the curiosity, kindness, and ambition of the Rocky Mountain spirit. And we believe that redefining the urban public research university is the most important thing we can do for higher education and for the future of America. "
