CSU Commitment to Community
Outreach is among the pillars that Colorado State University was founded upon and is an effort that continues today through interaction with our Colorado communities, and around the globe. CSU’s Commitment to Community is a reflection of the University’s promise of service and engagement to Colorado citizens, executed by providing resources, participating in events, and building community partnerships. Colorado State University is proud to be part of such a vibrant and active Fort Collins Community. At many of the community events you will find CSU hosting a booth, tent, or activities. This spring we are proud to be part of multiple community events. We invite you to join in on all the fun!
