    I have been working at University of Colorado Colorado Springs full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    We have great faculty, staff, and students. The university is growing and expanding into new areas. Colorado Springs is a wonderful place to live, and UCCS is a great workplace. The campus serves a diverse student body with lots of veterans, 1st generation college students, and non-traditional working students. The campus has a great culture that supports equity, diversity, and inclusion while also providing a balanced lifestyle. As an R2 university, UCCS values excellence in research, teaching, and service.

    Cons

    The campus receives minimal state funding, which is a shame because the UCCS campus doesn't have the same large financial endowment as the campus at CU-Boulder.
