In the Rocky Mountains, a region made legendary in the American imagination by western stories and movies for over a century and a half, Colorado has established one of the most impressive higher education systems in the west. Colorado's best colleges and universities began with settlers bringing their dreams with them from the east, establishing schools and seminaries in a wide range of denominations and faiths, then grew with Colorado's mining, petroleum, and agriculture. Colorado has also historically been a leader in environmental science, turning their varied landscapes - from rugged mountains to prairies and deserts - to their advantage, while also emerging as a center for alternative energy and sustainability. Trade and energy made Colorado a center for business and engineering education, making institutions like Colorado State and Colorado School of Mines world-class STEM educators. In today's era, Colorado education has grown to encompass some of the world's most elite and prestigious technology programs, as Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs have emerged as hubs for entrepreneurship and innovation. Today, when education experts look to the future, they rightly look to Colorado.
According to Managing Editor Carrie Sealey-Morris, Colorado is "a little of everything - diverse in people, in geography, and in industry." That diversity has been Colorado's greatest strength: "the Native Americans who first settled the Americas, Hispanic and Latino people, and the descendants of the frontiersmen and women of many races and nationalities who braved the Great Plains, deserts, and Rocky Mountains to forge a home." From all of these people, making their way, Colorado has become "a watchword not only for natural beauty, but independence, progressiveness, hard work, and fun." All of Colorado's character is reflected in its higher education system, which brings together major public research universities, experimental liberal arts colleges, devout religious institutions, and more, all primed to meet the complex needs of Colorado's people, from careers and professions to life and family.
