Colorado State University is a land-grant university. The concept of land-grant institutions is rooted in converging social, political, and cultural changes in the United States during the mid-19th century. In a tumultuous era of Civil War and westward expansion, U.S. Representative Justin Morrill of Vermont proposed creating a public college in every state that would be supported by federal grants of public land. Most of the available public land at the time was in the west.


Inspired by its land-grant heritage, Colorado State University is committed to excellence, setting the standard for public research universities in teaching, research, service and extension for the benefit of the citizens of Colorado, the United States and the world.


Qualified undergraduate and graduate students have many opportunities to engage in research and creative activity while enrolled at CSU. These opportunities allow students to enhance their education by working closely with a faculty mentor.
