Colorado State University

      public, coeducational institution of higher learning in Fort Collins, Colorado, U.S. It is a land-grant (land-grant college) university and a part of Colorado's state university system. Colorado State consists of the colleges of Agricultural Sciences, Applied Human Sciences, Business, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Natural Resources, Natural Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The university offers a range of bachelor's and master's degree programs and doctoral degrees in about 40 areas, mainly sciences and engineering. A professional program in veterinary medicine is also available. The university's dozens of research facilities include the Colorado Water Resources Research Institute, the Center for Earth-Atmosphere Studies, the International Institute for Sustainable Development, the Western Forest Fire Research Center, and the Equine Teaching and Research Center. Total enrollment is approximately 23,000.

      The territorial legislature of Colorado established the Agricultural College of Colorado in 1870. Instruction began in 1879. After a series of name changes the school became Colorado State University in 1957. Virtually from the outset, education and research in agriculture and forestry have been a central part of the university's mission. Separate from the main campus are a 775-acre (315-hectare) agriculture campus for experimentation and research; Foothills Campus, site of research projects; and Pingree Park, a forestry, natural resource management, and wildlife and fishery biology field campus in the Rocky Mountains.
