What is CSU Spur all about?

The physical imprint of CSU Spur is three buildings which make up the educational hub of the new $1.2 billion National Western Center redevelopment at the major intersections of I-25 and I-70 in north Denver.

Its central location makes it a destination, but what makes CSU Spur different from anything else is what happens inside the buildings. The campus is meant to bring the expertise and research of the CSU System to the public. Using the resources of the System’s three campuses – CSU Fort Collins, CSU Pueblo, and CSU Global – CSU Spur puts everything on-display for the everyday learner and brings learning to life.

The world is rapidly changing, with an expected global population of 9 billion by 2050. And with that increase in people comes an increased need for food and water … at a time when natural resources are dwindling. CSU Spur will tackle the biggest issues of our time and welcome the everyday visitor to watch. We’re here to inspire the next generation of scientists, veterinary medicine professionals, advocates … we’re here to change the world. Join us.

The CSU System and all of its campuses are equal opportunity employers.

Interns with the CSU System will work on supporting and developing partnerships, events, and programs that engage the community in the CSU Spur project. The intern will also have an opportunity to provide feedback on ways to share information and engage the communities that Spur strives to serve. 

The intern will have a key project, taking into account the relevant needs of the organization and the interests of the student.
