Mission Statement


The Center for Individualized Learning contributes to pre-eminence at MSU Denver by offering students and faculty the opportunity to engage in individualized, interdisciplinary, and innovative educational initiatives.  Our mission is to provide support for programs that expand upon the traditional university experience.   


The Center for Individualized Learning promotes:

  • Academic Integrity

To provide academic experiences that envelop high standards, ethical reasoning, and rigor, and to invite students to freely interpret and develop this knowledge.

  • Critical Thinking

To present academic challenges that encourage analysis, reflection, and communication.

  • Transformative Learning

To invite the expansion of personal and professional understanding, convictions, and behavior based on academic and reflective opportunities.


- Students use the Individualized Degree Program to craft their own interdisciplinary majors and minors that provide a comprehensive education tailored to their career and post-graduate educational goals.


- Faculty reach across disciplines and Schools to develop, "incubate," and pilot new academic programs that meet emerging community needs.


- The Metro Meritus program invites the growing number of older adults in the community to engage in lifelong learning, creating an intergenerational learning environment for all students.

‌The Center for Individualized Learning is located in the Administration Building, Suite 360 (this is the building across the street from the Auraria West Light Rail Station and above the Police Department). Feel free to phone us at 303-615-0525.
