CU-Boulder Values Diversity
  • Faculty, staff and students on our campus represent diverse identities, perspectives, ideas and varied levels of abilities and disabilities. CU-Boulder values our people who reflect ethnic, gender, geographical and intellectual diversity.
  • We believe diversity makes us better people. Diversity adds value to a world class research university by enriching everyone. Indeed, alumni become better citizens. Faculty and staff improve teaching, scholarship and service to the campus and our world.

“By 2030, CU-Boulder will be a model for the nation in applying best practices in support of diversity and inclusive excellence.”

Transformation

While alluding to the powerful role of the abilities of humans to transform existing systems, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King quoted the words of an elderly enslaved preacher of the African Diaspora who said…

“We ain’t what we ought to be and we ain’t what we’re going to be. But thank God, we ain’t what we was.”

ODECE extends a special Thank You to:

Members, Blue Ribbon Commission (BRC)

“The University is not the campus, not the buildings on the campus, not the faculties, not the students of any one time – not one of these or all of them. The University consists of all who come into and go forth from her halls, who are touched by her influence and who carry on her spirit. Wherever you go, the University goes with you. Wherever you are at work there is the University at work.”

President George Norlin, June 1935
