CSU System announces date for Spur campus groundbreaking celebration
DENVER – On April 30 at 1:30 p.m., the Colorado State University System will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its planned Spur campus, a major component of the future National Western Center in north Denver.
CSU System will hold one groundbreaking for its entire three-building campus in Denver, which will be home to year-round educational programs and experiences for the public, as well as research and classroom spaces.
“This groundbreaking is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of partnership and innovation that drives the creation of the Spur campus,” said CSU System Chancellor Tony Frank. “We invite anyone with an interest to join us and learn what this one-of-a-kind campus will offer to Denver and Colorado: a great environment for collaborative research and an interactive public space for learning and exploring around the global challenges of food, water, and health.”

The campus within the larger National Western Center campus will house several primary partner programs, including the Temple Grandin Equine Center, Dumb Friends League outreach clinic, and Denver Water compliance lab. Further, the campus will act as a platform for programmatic partners, such as Denver Museum of Nature and Science and History Colorado.
