History of the University 

Since 1965 Colorado Technical University has been proud to educate career focused students to advance their education and help achieve their goals. CTU’s commitment to provide innovative, real-world learning to students within Colorado, the military, across the U.S. and overseas has never wavered.


Commitment to the Military

It all started with two military men who wanted to help U.S. Veterans transition back to civilian life more easily through education. Richard Davis was a Colonel and a pilot. Robert Turkisher was a Major and a navigator. He was also our founder and first president…the first to set us on our course.  Over the years, CTU has earned top Military honors and awarded over $4.5 million in scholarships to Wounded Warriors. Serving those who have risked their lives for our country is embedded in our past, present and future.


University Accreditation
