Campus history

Established in Denver in 1975, the campus moved to Aurora in 1979 after enrollments outpaced available space. In the early years, the campus served active duty military personnel at Lowry Air Force Base and Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center, plus retired military and corporate students from major companies in the area.

Today, it continues to serve adult learners in the Denver area.
