CU Denver 2030
CU Denver is embarking on an ambitious and purpose-driven journey.
Why now? Because the world needs what CU Denver provides: big ideas, innovative solutions, and equitable access to a high-quality education for our diverse workforce. Rising to meet this challenge, our campus community has said it is ready to take CU Denver to greater levels of impact.
With the 100 Days of Listening findings in mind, we are working to create a vision and strategy that will differentiate CU Denver and help us reach our full potential as a public urban research university by 2030.
We welcome all members of the CU Denver community to share their boldest ideas. We encourage everyone—students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, employers, community partners—to help contribute to a strategic plan that will inspire our community and propel our institution forward.

Eight vision teams are addressing major cross-cutting themes and generating innovative ideas to amplify our impact and drive the university to greater levels of success. Each team has determined a strategy to engage our community for input and recommendations on their work. Connect with the vision teams here.

Valuing the input of our community, we will synthesize the big ideas from the vision teams into a cohesive strategy that will guide CU Denver into the next decade. The resulting strategic plan will be presented to the Board of Regents in June 2021.
