Colorado Mesa University provides an exceptional education in state-of-the-art facilities. As western Colorado’s intellectual center and largest university, CMU serves students on its main and satellite campuses, its community college and online.
As one of the few universities designated by the state as a selective institution for admissions, we believe in hard work and proving yourself. Our students are intellectually curious and incredibly driven.
We believe that higher education can be more responsive, more demanding and more personal. In todays complex world our focus is simple: preparing students for a changing world by giving them the knowledge and tools they need to flourish long after they graduate. Our single job is to prepare students, in the words of Thoreau, to go confidently in the direction of their dreams.
