Living in the Mavericks Community

Committed to a personal approach, Colorado Mesa University is a dynamic learning environment that offers abundant opportunities for students and the larger community to grow intellectually, professionally, and personally. By celebrating exceptional teaching, academic excellence, scholarly and creative activities, and by encouraging diversity, critical thinking, and social responsibility, CMU advances the common good of Colorado and beyond.

Colorado Mesa University offers a broad array of baccalaureate majors, with numerous areas of concentration, and selected graduate degrees. Nearly all programs include practical application of knowledge and skills as a key component of students' learning. These hands-on experiences may come through internships, fieldwork, student teaching, or clinical practice. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, interaction with students is commonplace and affords faculty the ability to involve undergraduates in challenging research opportunities usually found only in graduate programs. The CMU campus features high tech classrooms, modern facilities and vast resources, all of which creates an atmosphere conducive to student learning and growth.
