ABOUT University of Northern Colorado

The history of The University of Northern Colorado begins in the late 1880s, when citizens of Greeley petitioned the Colorado government to create a school to educate teachers in their community. In April 1889 Governor Cooper signed a bill establishing the Colorado State Normal School. Classes began in October of the next year. The university opened on October 6, 1890, as the Colorado State Normal School to train qualified teachers for the state's public schools, with a staff of four instructors and 96 students. Greeley's citizens raised the money for the first building. In 1911 the school's name was changed to Colorado State Teachers College and two years later, in 1913, graduate courses were added to the school’s curriculum, leading to a name change in 1935, when the school became the Colorado State College of Education. The school continues to grow, and in 1957 the name was shortened to Colorado State College to reflect the wider range of programs and degrees. Finally, in 1970 the name was changed to the current University of Northern Colorado.

Take a seat in UNC’s theatre in the round, ’Little Theatre of the Rockies,’ and see student performers and guest artists in a theatrical production like you’ve never seen it before. Immerse yourself in three days of world-class jazz at the UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival. Enjoy public art installations and galleries that feed your imagination, and stop between classes to take in impromptu outdoor concerts. It’s no surprise that a university known for an outstanding performing and visual arts program would share talent and entertainment with the campus and regional community.
