Denver, Colo. – The Colorado State University System will formalize its partnership with Bruce Randolph School during a public MOU-signing on Friday.

The CSU System has partnered with Bruce Randolph School on a variety of student-centered programs in recent years, including: an annual 8th-grade class visit to CSU’s Fort Collins campus; an annual community open house with the CSU Little Shop of Physics to inspire youth interest in science, equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) at the Denver-based CSU Temple Grandin Center; and “Road to CSU,” an all-day event to prepare 9th-graders for life beyond high school.

During the event, several Bruce Randolph School students will share stories about their experience interacting with CSU.

Denver Public Schools Superintendent Susana Cordova, CSU President and CSU System Chancellor Tony Frank, Bruce Randolph School Principal Melissa Boyd, and will deliver brief remarks before signing the official Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

In 2022, CSU will open three buildings at the future National Western Center in north Denver, less than two miles from Bruce Randolph School, focused on experiential learning opportunities and research around today’s most pressing local and global challenges in food, water, sustainability, and human and animal health.

Formalizing the partnership is intended to showcase the institutions’ commitment for future efforts, collaboration, and shared impact.
