WE ARE INNOVATORS
AND THIS IS WHAT WE BELIEVE...
Our work is a choice that indicates our values.
Good isn’t good enough. We learn, we think, we act. We grow courageously.
We DO, with integrity in all things.
We measure impact through created value, honored commitments and opportunities built for ourselves and others
It takes differences of opinion and identity to build worthwhile things.
CREATIVITY IS THINKING OF NEW THINGS.
INNOVATION MEANS DOING THEM.
Let’s DO together.
We facilitate teams of interdisciplinary students and faculty from Colorado College, Pikes Peak Community College, University of Colorado Colorado Springs and the US Air Force Academy (insofar as authorized by Federal law) working together to advance strategic projects for area companies and organizations. As the only partnership combining the capacities of a private liberal arts college, a state research university, a regional community college and a US service academy in the United States, the Quad’s value is built on the diversity of institutions it represents. Within the Quad network, there are over 40,000 students, 2,000 expert faculty and some of the most advanced research, analysis and design capabilities in Colorado. We dedicate the right mix of these resources to every project we take on.
We connect students and recent graduates with opportunities to do meaningful, professional work. Much more than an internship, the Quad is an opportunity to build professional networks, experience and capability that jumpstart careers and accelerate community impact.
For our community and business partners, we offer access to the collective capacities of four world class institutions of higher learning, relationships with future workforce, company and community leaders and distinctive, viable results.
And, for our home in southern Colorado, we channel the objective expertise and capability of academia into solutions that move our region forward.
