Message from the President
The CU Advocates program will help us tell our stories, and there are thousands to tell. We are a university that provides Colorado and the nation with a highly skilled workforce. We engage in research that creates jobs and changes lives. We have an economic impact of more than $6 billion on Colorado annually. We are at the leading edge of important issues facing our state and society, including health care, renewable and sustainable energy, biotechnology, aerospace and geosciences. We have been a stable force in Colorado for more than 135 years.
These stories define CU. By sharing your CU story, you bring to life the value of the university.
In becoming a CU Advocate, you can lend your voice to our efforts to continue our contributions to our state and nation. As you will see on the following pages, you can select your level of involvement and we will help guide your activities. Whether talking about CU’s value in your community, conveying the university’s benefits to a prospective student, talking with elected officials about the importance of higher education, or volunteering on one of our campuses, you can make a difference. We appreciate your consideration and look forward to joining your voice and actions with thousands of others who care deeply about our university.
Bruce D. Benson
