Student Life Creed


After gathering and assembling extensive student feedback, student leaders participating in the Mountain Lion Leadership Council established the UCCS Creed in 2017. The UCCS Creed embodies the collective values of UCCS students while promoting a positive campus culture. We strive to embody Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence - P.R.I.D.E.



Our Values

As UCCS students we strive to embody this creed...
  • We make our school an inclusive learning environment where all students can succeed. We use this success to drive positive change in ourselves and our communities.

  • We value each other's unique qualities and are able to discuss powerful topics with kindness and an open mind.

  • We keep our commitments and are honest with everyone we meet. Our character is of the highest quality.

  • We reach higher through our education, relationships, and involvement with campus life.

  • We take responsibility for our thoughts, words, and actions. We continue to improve through both failure and success.
