University of Colorado Boulder

As one of 34 U.S. public research institutions belonging to the prestigious Association of American Universities—and the only member in the Rocky Mountain region—our goal at CU Boulder is to directly affect Colorado communities through collaborative research, innovation and entrepreneurship. Our faculty, staff and students work with the broader community to establish unique connections that have lasting outcomes—both across Colorado and around the world.

University of Colorado Boulder aerospace engineering students are working with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to create robotic rovers that can investigate some of the earth’s hostile natural environments. See the rovers in action, and find out how CU-Boulder students are getting invaluable hands-on experience.
The  Integrated Teaching and Learning Program (ITL) is nationally recognized as an award-winning engineering education leader, this program supports hands-on engineering learning through an innovative environment where students integrate engineering theory with practice and learn through doing.
Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership: Actively Learning Mathematics Research Action Cluster: A nationwide network of 38 teams — spanning 30 states, 69 universities, 87 school systems, 9 community colleges, and a variety of other interested institutions — working collaboratively to reform secondary mathematics teacher preparation at the college and university level.

By creating coordinated partnerships among 2-year colleges and the 4-year research universities in Colorado, we will create pathways that increase the number of students, and the quality of their preparation, from historically underrepresented populations in the STEM fields (including students

The National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) is headquartered at CU Boulder, and a non-profit organization chartered in 2004 by the National Science Foundation to increase the participation of girls and women in computing. Before NCWIT was formed, programs focusing on women and computing (K-12, post secondary, or corporate) existed mostly in isolation, without the benefit of shared best practices, effective resources, communication with others, or national reach.
The  Center for STEM Learning: Housed within the Graduate School, the Center for STEM Learning (CSL) was officially formed on December 20, 2012. CSL is an outcome of the NSF Grant “I3: Towards a Center for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education.”
The STEM Institutional Transformation Action Research (SITAR) Project, housed in the Center for STEM Learning, aims to improve undergraduate STEM education by professionalizing educational practice through measurement, assessment, and cultural change.
As one of only 36 U.S. public research institutions in the Association of American Universities (AAU), the University of Colorado Boulder is about realizing the positive impacts of new knowledge.
