A welcome from the University of Colorado:
 
The University of Colorado Boulder is nationally recognized as one of only 36 AAU public research universities. Established in 1876, CU Boulder is a Tier 1 public research university with five Nobel laureates and nine MacArthur “genius” fellows, and is the No. 1 public university recipient of NASA awards. CU Boulder is a leader in many fields, including aerospace engineering, physics, and environmental law. The school partners with many notable federal research labs, including the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
 
CU Boulder, founded in 1876, is the flagship campus of the University of Colorado system. From the Rocky Mountains to the engaging downtown, Boulder offers something for everyone and has recently been recognized as one of the happiest cities in America, a top place to live and raise a family, and a top 10 tech city.
 
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is the largest academic health center in the Rocky Mountain region and a world-class medical destination at the forefront of transformative education, science, medicine, and healthcare. The campus includes the University of Colorado health professional schools, multiple centers and institutes, and two nationally ranked hospitals, UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado, which treat nearly 2 million patients each year. All interconnected, these organizations collaboratively improve the quality of patient care they deliver, research they conduct, and health professionals they train.
 
As the CU Anschutz Medical Campus has evolved and grown, so has the city and region we call home. Colorado’s third largest city, Aurora is home to a budding arts scene, hundreds of ethnically diverse restaurants, and recreational opportunities ranging from boating to hiking. And with the Rocky Mountains a short drive away, there is no better location to be inspired by your surroundings than Colorado.
