About the University of Northern Colorado

Founded in 1889 as the state teachers' college, today the University of Northern Colorado boasts more than 100 undergraduate and 100-plus graduate programs of study offered by five colleges that include a nationally recognized business school, innovative health and human science programs, and award-winning theater arts and teacher education programs, all supported by a cornerstone curriculum in the humanities and social sciences.

Our People


Our alumni often say the connections they made with faculty made a huge difference not only when they were at UNC, but long after, as they traveled their career and life paths. That partnership and community is something we take great pride in – a university culture that is welcoming, collaborative, supportive and committed to student success, service and education.

Our students are diverse and hard-working, and there’s no one “label” that defines them. More than one-third of UNC undergraduates are the first in their family to go to college and more than one-quarter are eligible for federal need-based financial aid. Of all UNC students, more than one-quarter identify as students of color.

UNC faculty are experts in their fields; they are scholars who engage their students in research and teachers who bring new knowledge to the classroom. As UNC Biology Professor Scott Franklin says, “We have our faculty teach almost all upper division labs. Because of the interaction with faculty there is a lot of research potential for undergrads. There are very high quality faculty here doing great research and teaching.”

Values, Purposes and Goals


The University provides services that support equal learning opportunities for all students. Learning occurs in an environment characterized by small classes taught by full-time faculty. UNC faculty, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, subscribe to a teacher/scholar model in which excellence in instruction is complemented by activities in scholarship and service. Support for the continuous improvement of teaching, learning, scholarship and service is provided through University programs, policies and practices.

Vision Statement
The University strives to be a leading student-centered university that promotes effective teaching, lifelong learning, the advancement of knowledge, research, and a commitment to service. Graduates are educated in the Liberal Arts and professionally prepared to live and contribute effectively in a rapidly changing, technologically advanced society.

Our Town, Greeley


Greeley is a friendly community less than an hour’s drive from Denver, firmly rooted in Colorado life and recreation. With a population of about 100,000, and a vibe that is eclectic and wholly unique, Greeley offers limitless outdoor recreation; art, music and community events; and a range of shopping and restaurants for every interest and appetite.
