Western Colorado University fulfills its statutory mission by promoting intellectual maturity and personal growth in its students, and graduates citizens prepared to assume constructive roles in local, national and global communities. Western Colorado University helps its students develop the skills and commitments needed to continue learning throughout their lives and strives to elucidate the connections unifying academic domains, which have traditionally existed separately: the sciences, liberal arts and professional programs. The University provides students with a solid foundation of skills in written and spoken communication, problem solving, critical thinking and creativity. Our programs encourage a breadth and depth of knowledge to serve as a foundation for a professional career or graduate study, and an appreciation of values appropriate to a liberally educated individual. Western Colorado University's distinctive character emerges from its unity among academic and professional disciplines, its high standards of scholarship and its unique environment in the mountains of Western Colorado.
