Transforming Lives Campaign


The World Needs Mines


For three consecutive years, Colorado School of Mines has broken records – raising more than $47.8 million in private support last year from generous alumni, friends and industry partners. 

This outpouring of support couldn’t come at a better time. 

Over the next decade, a critical shortage of qualified scientists and engineers promises to place our students in higher demand than ever before. A growing global population, paired with increased demand for resources and energy, promises to make our unmatched expertise more sought after than ever before. 

The world needs Mines. We are ready to meet these challenges, and we need your help to realize our vision.

With your support, we have embarked on the most ambitious initiative in the university’s 140-year history. Transforming Lives: The Campaign for Colorado School of Mines will secure Mines’ ability to train the leaders and problem-solvers our global challenges demand. The impact of the campaign can already be seen.
