Our strategic planning process has led us to a new shared vision for transforming CU-Boulder into one of the nation's leading public research universities. The vision includes the contributions of a variety of individuals, and it recognizes CU-Boulder's ongoing statutory mission as a "comprehensive graduate research university with selective admissions." In it, we challenge ourselves to become a "new flagship university" within the next quarter-century:
The University of Colorado at Boulder will become a leading model of the "new flagship university" of the 21st century—by redefining learning and discovery in a global context and setting new standards in education, research, scholarship, and creative work that will benefit Colorado and the world.
At CU-Boulder, we recognize the exceptional opportunities associated with our role as a research university, and we value the unique strength and character research achievements bring to undergraduate education. We are keenly aware of our responsibility for educating the next generation of citizens and leaders, and for fostering the spirit of discovery through research. Indeed, we believe that our students, both graduate and undergraduate, benefit from the comprehensive mix of programs and research excellence that characterize a flagship university. Thus, we believe CU-Boulder's statutory mission is relevant today and will remain relevant tomorrow.
