School Details

The history of the University of Colorado dates back to the earliest days of Colorado and precedes the creation of the state. At its first session in 1861, the Colorado territorial legislature passed an act providing for the creation of a university in Boulder. When Colorado became the 38th state in the Union in 1876, the university was declared an institution of the state. By the mid-1960s, community leaders pressed for a full-fledged University of Colorado presence in Colorado Springs, and an extension opened in 1965.
