PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT VACCINATION MESSAGE FROM CU PRESIDENT, MARK KENNEDY
April 28, 2021
Dear Members of the CU Community,
Since the health and safety of our campus communities is among our top priorities, we have determined to require that all University of Colorado students, faculty and staff receive a COVID-19 vaccine before the start of fall semester 2021. We made this decision after consulting state and local health departments, the Governor's Office, and the Colorado Department of Higher Education, as well as CU scientists, medical experts and COVID advisory committees and task forces on our campuses. We believe the science around COVID vaccines is clear and compelling. As with our established vaccination policies, exemptions can be sought.
This decision is good for public health, not only because it will lower rates of infection on our campuses, but also in the communities they call home. It will also allow students, faculty and staff to benefit from the on-campus experience that is critical to academic success and personal growth. Several other Colorado institutions of higher education are joining us and making the same announcement today.
The individual campuses and system administration will provide more detail specific to their communities in the near future. In the meantime, we have posted an initial FAQ page. It will be updated as we gather more information and as more questions emerge.
We appreciate all you have done to persevere through the challenges of the pandemic. Today’s decision will bring us one step closer to ensuring we continue to deliver a quality CU experience for all.
Mark Kennedy, President

Welcome to the Department of Integrative Biology, with research-based programs that prepare our students to become critical problem solvers. We recognize science not as a collection of facts, but as a process designed to help students make informed decisions about the nature of evidence. Our faculty are funded in cutting-edge research in a broad range of biological disciplines and our community of students actively engage in research learning environments that encourage publication and job training.
Our department offers BS, MS, and PhD degree programs, with opportunities for students to specialize in a range of fields. In addition, we offer two undergraduate certificates in Biotechnology and in Environmental Stewardship of Indigenous Lands (ESIL).
