The Chancellor’s Standing Committee on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues has accomplished numerous projects since its establishment in 1992. The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Resource Center has provided programs and addressed issues concerning the community since 1995. An undergraduate certificate program in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies is also offered through the College of Arts and Sciences.
Boulder is often called the “People’s Republic of Boulder” due to its liberal views. Naturally, this political climate affects all of the city’s inhabitants, including students. After spending some time on campus, students become accustomed to seeing political rallies and witnessing debates throughout the year.
Given the high percentage of out-of-state students, a large part of the student body is linked to upper-middle-class backgrounds.
Most Common Religions
There are a number of religious centers scattered throughout campus and the Boulder area. On-campus associations can be found, ranging from the Zen Society to the Hillel Jewish Student Resource Center.
Minority Clubs on Campus
In response to CU’s lack of diversity, the University has shown a conscious effort to improve ethnic and cultural diversity on campus. Several resources are now available, including the Diversity Education Team, Ethnic Advocacy Committees, Hallet Hall Diversity Program, Minority Alumni Network, Multicultural Development Team, and the Cultural Unity Center.
