Community Connections

Community Connections is an e-newsletter published monthly by the University Advancement Division at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS).

At UCCS, we understand that an important part of planning for the future is to share information and to invite others to build upon the ideas being launched at the university. This is the purpose of Community Connections: to share with you our actions and to invite you to join us in inventing the future of our region. Your participation and feedback are essential in building the kind of university, and the kind of community, that makes us proud.

If you're not already receiving Community Connections, you can sign up by sending an email to Jennifer Hane in the Office of University Advancement or by calling (719) 255-3180. Previous issues of Community Connections can be viewed below.

Thank you for joining us on this journey!
