A Message from the Director

Hello! Thanks for visiting our website. I am pleased to lead the Innovation Program at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). We are the home to the world’s first and only Bachelor of Innovation (BI) degree – a fully-accredited alternative to the standard Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees.

Innovation is so important to the future that we put it in the name of our degree. 

While the world is faced with many complex problems we relish the challenge. Smart people working together in teams can solve problems and change everything. Innovation is the driving force of the global economy. We offer eight Innovation Core classes that help our students become innovators in a state known for leading. The University of Colorado system was recently ranked the 33rd Most Innovative in the World by Reuters – alongside the University of Oxford and Osaka University.

Please take a look at our site. Let us know if we can help you. We would love the chance to share our program with you.

We are innovators. We never stop.

All the Best!
