Colorado State University Campus at the National Western Center

We know that the challenges of tomorrow cannot be solved by the thinking of today.

This idea is at the core of the National Western Center, a major redevelopment project in north Denver, comprised of local, national, and global partners.

The CSU Campus at the National Western Center will have three buildings focused on food, water, sustainability, and human and animal health. And, CSU will provide a platform for others – a place for diverse partners to activate and educate.

The NWC Mission: is to convene the world at the National Western Center to lead, inspire, create, educate, and entertain in pursuit of global food solutions.

CSU’s Vision: Colorado State University at the National Western Center will demonstrate global leadership in understanding and educating about the intersections between food, water, and health.

Programming across all CSU buildings

  • K-12 and family education
  • Research
  • Public events
  • Showcasing Colorado’s strength in water, food, health
  • Professional development
  • Continuing education
  • Industry and corporate collaboration
  • Community engagement
