The abundance and expansion of nonprofit and government entities is making Southern Colorado a hub for careers in the public sector. As the need for qualified workers to fill these roles has risen, a public university in Southern Colorado specializing in these fields has become even more crucial. That’s where the UCCS School of Public Affairs comes in.

A substantial portion of the Colorado Springs Police Department command staff received their master’s degree from the School of Public Affairs, and an increasing number of local nonprofit executives have come to UCCS to get their Master of Public Administration. Your contribution to the School of Public Affairs sends a message of support for Southern Colorado’s public sector.

We have a bright future, but we need the support of alumni and our community to reach our full potential.
