University Center Mission Statement
More than just a building, the University Center creates an environment for learning that supports the mission of the campus. The "UC" is a safe and welcoming gathering place for the UCCS community. Serving as the centralized location for campus events and information, the University Center provides a home for a variety of student-focused services and organizations, as well as eating establishments, meeting rooms, art spaces, and lounges.
Serving as the student union for UCCS, the University Center strives to be the desired destination for the campus to come together both formally and informally in a clean, state-of-the-art facility. The University Center invests in the development of our student and professional staff, as well as builds strong partnerships with its internal occupants, in order to provide timely, consistent, and hospitable service. Anticipating in advance the needs of our diverse customers, the University Center will provide seamless and individualized support for all events. As an Auxiliary department, the University Center will operate in a fiscally responsible manner, while always retaining a focus on educating students and creating communities.
Our core values are an integral part of our culture. University Center staff members look to them to guide their decisions and actions.
