History of Colorado State University-Global Campus Colorado State University-Global Campus is the newest institution in the Colorado State University System (CSUS), an established university system with a rich 140-year history that evolved from agrarian roots as a land-grant institution. CSUGlobal was established on August 24, 2007, by the CSUS Board of Governors with a central goal of meeting the educational needs of adult learners in the State of Colorado and beyond by providing high quality online programs. On May 7, 2008, the CSUS Board of Governors delegated authority to CSU-Global to oversee academic, personnel, and financial matters consistent with powers granted to CSU and CSU-Pueblo. Thereafter, CSU-Global was legally sanctioned as a third, independent University on March 18, 2009, when Colorado’s Governor Ritter signed into law the State of Colorado Senate Bill 09-086 declaring the establishment of the CSU-Global Campus as an online university that is part of the Colorado State University System. CSU-Global is the first statutorily-defined 100% online public university in the United States. It has a unique focus on the success of adult, nontraditional learners with learning outcomes focused on theory, knowledge, and skills necessary to secure employment and improve job performance. From its first class of nearly 200 students in 2008, CSU-Global has now grown to have a student body of over 10,000 students with more than 500 new enrollments admitted each session. On June 30, 2011, Colorado State University-Global Campus was officially granted independent regional accreditation status by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. CSU-Global is the first public university in Colorado to receive initial HLC accreditation since 1971, a significant achievement for the university, the CSU System, and online education.
