Made up of three buildings that focus on food, water and health, the Spur campus was created by a university and offers an education to anyone and everyone. Spur is more than a physical location, it’s a hub – a network – to connect people across the state, region and world. A place to learn of course, but really a place for the public. The buildings will open in 2022.
Water is the source of all life, and as a headwaters state, Colorado’s water footprint impacts
millions of people in multiple states and Mexico. Water flows much like culture—blurring physical barriers, creating life wherever it reaches, reaching far beyond its origins.
To live is to be connected—to people, to community, to animals. The Vida building embodies this connectivity between human and animal life, as well as the connectivity of the Spur campus to the diverse cultures and Latinx ties within the surrounding neighborhoods of Globeville and Elyria-Swansea.
Earth provides the nutrients to feed the world. Terra at the Spur campus brings agriculture to
life, allowing people to understand where their food comes from, the challenges that lie ahead as the global population grows rapidly, and how we can all participate in shaping our food future. The Latin language, while no longer widely spoken, is at the root of many modern words. Much in the same way, traditional farming and the spirit of agriculture has evolved over time, while still serving as a foundation for technology and innovation within modern food systems.
