BOLD Center

The BOLD (Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and Diversity) Center of CU Boulder's College of Engineering and Applied Science is committed to graduating an innovative and competitive engineering work force that is diverse in gender, ethnicity and socio-economic representation. BOLD's purpose is to break down the barriers that keep too many of today's young talent from reaching their aspirations by broadening participation, improving student retention and supporting the community needs of diverse engineering students.

The BOLD (Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and Diversity) Center is a vibrant, inclusive community of engineering students from diverse perspectives. BOLD provides an enriching environment where motivated engineering students learn with peers who have similar academic aspirations, interests, and personal expectations.

The BOLD Center offers:
- Free tutoring through the Student Success Center in Aden Hall, Williams Village Central, and the BOLD Center
- Residential "living and learning" communities
- Scholarships
- Career development guidance, including internship and job opportunities
- Industry mentoring and relationship building
- Summer bridge programs to prepare incoming students
- Extensive K-12 STEM education opportunities

The BOLD Center works with elementary, middle and high school students who are interested in pursuing engineering, computer science, and technology. CU Boulder engineering students volunteer for each event that the BOLD Center hosts.

For each event that the BOLD Center hosts, or co-hosts, CU-Boulder engineering students volunteer.
