A Tradition of Academic Excellence

The University of Colorado Boulder is an exceptional place, offering a rich tradition of excellence, nationally recognized academics, outstanding faculty, a dynamic student body, a multitude of unique learning opportunities, and a spectacular natural and cultural environment. Located in a scenic valley at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder is among the most dynamic, progressive, and attractive cities of its size in the United States. The university is one of thirty-four U.S. public institutions belonging to the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), and the only member in the Rocky Mountain region. And, while it is a major research university and the state of Colorado's flagship university, the campus maintains a small college atmosphere with 97 percent of full-time faculty teaching undergraduate students.
