Metropolitan State University was founded in 1971 as an upper-division university offering bachelor's degrees for working adults. Since then, it has achieved national prominence as an innovative, urban university that serves primarily older students of diverse backgrounds.
The university will provide accessible, high-quality liberal arts, professional, and graduate education to the citizens and communities of the metropolitan area, with continued emphasis on underserved groups, including adults and communities of color.
The Center for Psychological Research (CPR)'s mission is to support psychological research and the dissemination of research findings. CPR facilitates psychological, social and behavioral research efforts, particularly in diverse urban communities. The CPR supports research by the faculty and students at Metropolitan State University, but individuals at other institutions and in other areas are affiliated with the Center. Anyone conducting psychological, social, or behavioral research, particularly in urban contexts, may seek affiliation with the Center.
Each student is unique and accommodations are based on the individual needs of the student. Center for Accessibility Resources works with students through an interactive process to determine what would be appropriate and reasonable for that individual. There is not exhaustive list of accommodations that are available to students. We work with each student to determine their accommodations, which may change over time depending on their disability and the courses and/or activities they are participating in.
Library and Information Services exists to fulfill the information needs and foster the intellectual growth of the Metropolitan State community. We achieve this by:
Designated computers are available to community and alumni use on the first floor of the library. Community users are allowed three log-ins to these computers per day, each for up to one hour. However, each one hour session will be extended automatically by 30 minute increments until there is demand for the workstation.
Campus Operations consists of the Departments of Facilities, Public Safety and Security, Environmental Health and Safety, Event Planning and Classroom Scheduling staff who are focused on providing a safe, attractive atmosphere conducive for a higher education environment. We consider the students, staff and community in anticipating needs to be proactive in offering quick and effective responses. We strive to understand our customers to provide a comfortable, healthy and inviting environment.
