Our research enterprise has again attracted record external research funding—more than $511 million this year—a fitting indication of the impact our campus is having on the wider world.

Thousands of campus contributors—faculty, researchers, staff, postdocs and undergraduate and graduate students—play crucial roles in the university’s impact. Add in the contributions of our many collaborators, including partners in industry and federal labs, government, the entrepreneurial ecosystem, the local community and others, and you have something special that can happen only in Boulder.
