Innovating IT, Empowering CSU


Our values define who we are, tell our story, and drive our decisions and actions.


Invested in each other’s success, we value and support our family of team members and campus partners, and we share a common purpose.


Our reason for existing. We value responsive and responsible customer service, knowing and empowering our constituents, and delivering efficient and effective solutions.


Dedicated to being dependable IT partners, we draw on our combined experience, creativity, and accrued knowledge in our commitment to excellence.


We aspire to champion bold transformation by adopting the pillars of simplicity—stability, predictability, modularity, and reliability—to drive elegant innovation, ethical and sustainable use of resources, and proactive decision making.


Guided by CSU’s commitment to a rich vision of community, we aspire to nurture equity and inclusion, act with openness and integrity, foster respect for all people, contribute to local and global well-being, and promote social justice.


Mandatory COVID screening:

Beginning Monday, Feb. 22, the following students, faculty and staff are required, per university policy, to screen weekly.

  • All staff who are regularly, physically on a CSU campus or other university grounds in Larimer County
  • All students attending any course with any in-person or hybrid component
  • All students living in university housing or a fraternity or sorority house
  • All faculty and instructors teaching a face-to-face class or hybrid course

Any student, faculty or staff member who is not required to screen may still participate in screening as often as they wish.

Students who are taking online classes only and who are not living in university housing or a fraternity or sorority house, and employees who are working remotely exclusively and are not regularly on a campus or CSU worksite in Larimer County are not expected to screen on this schedule. It is, however, permissible for individuals in these later groups to occasionally visit university grounds for very brief periods of time, such as to pick up mail, a file or library materials, and not be screened weekly. See the full announcement for additional details and information.

All students and employees are required to alert the University immediately through the COVID Reporter when they have possible symptoms of COVID-19, even on days they may not be reporting to work or working remotely. They are also expected and required to report exposures or positive tests from a non-CSU testing location.
