Board of Regents' Metrics for Campus Performance

The board implemented four metrics for advancing the university's strategic priorities.  Every campus established goals based on these metrics.  Click to view the baseline data for the selected metrics.

Economic Impact

In FY2016, The University of Colorado and its affiliates on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, including University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado, generated a total economic impact of $12.35 billion for the state of Colorado. At CU campuses, funding from tuition, grants, contracts, gifts, and appropriations is turned around and spent, in large part, in private industry. These expenditures generated an economic impact of $8.3 billion on the state of Colorado in FY2016 (nearly $4 billion from direct university spending) and directly employed or supported 53,442 workers in the state.
