About the Colorado Womens College

About Us

In 1888, Colorado Women's College was founded as a place for women throughout the Rocky Mountain region to achieve a higher education.

Today, we're one of only 46 women's colleges in the U.S. and Canada, and the only women's college directly serving undergraduate women who live and work in Colorado.

A University of Denver degree

Colorado Women's College places women at the center in an academically challenging and life-changing learning environment. We elevate women's thought leadership in the classroom and through research and discussion. Students graduate with a well-respected degree from the University of Denver – prepared to lead and achieve their goals.

A college designed specifically for women:

  • Classes held during evenings, weekends and online
  • Emphasis on academic excellence, global responsibility, community engagement and creative approaches to problem solving
  • Small classes, high-caliber professors
  • Supportive learning environment that includes many other women who are balancing school, work and other aspects of their lives

At Colorado Women's College you'll find sisters, mothers and friends. New high school graduates, veterans and women who are first in their families to go to college. They are today's determined women. And armed with a University of Denver degree through Colorado Women's College, they are also tomorrow's leaders.
