Four Campuses, One University
The University of Colorado is a public research university with multiple campuses serving Colorado, the nation and the world through leadership in high-quality education and professional training, public service, advancing research and knowledge, and state-of-the-art health care.

Statement from University of Colorado President Bruce D. Benson, Nov. 27, 2015
The entire University of Colorado community mourns the tragic loss of Officer Garrett Swasey of our Colorado Springs campus, who lost his life today in the line of duty. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rachel, their children and family. Officer Swasey was a valued member of our campus community and his heroic service along with his fellow law enforcement officers and first responders is indicative of the deep ties between the campus and the Colorado Springs community. Our communities are poorer for his loss.
