As the #32 ranked school of public affairs in America, we take pride in our programs and feel a responsibility to train tomorrow’s leaders for Colorado and beyond. Our motto is Lead. Solve. Change, and we take that seriously. From innovative MPA and MCJ concentrations in Emergency Management to Domestic Violence, to the highly successful growth of our first undergraduate degree (Bachelors in Criminal Justice), to our many community events, to the timely research of our Buechner Institute for Governance, we are a School committed to making an impact.
Public affairs challenges are abundant, for our nation, the state of Colorado, and the University of Colorado. As we work to help understand and revitalize the economy, deal with reduced budgets, and still advance human progress, the study of public affairs provides a solid foundation for these efforts, with our training in management, policy, budgets, and related topics more timely than ever.
