The Paul M. Rady School of Computer Science & Engineering, created with an $80 million gift from Denver oil and gas professional Paul Rady, represents an unconventional and uniquely promising solution to help tackle the dramatic and persistent shortage of Computer Science and Engineering professionals in the United States—a gap between workforce demand and capacity that is growing more and more pronounced each year.

“Paul Rady wisely realized that the best way to increase the number of highly trained Computer Science and Engineering graduates is to invest in a smaller, regional public university that has both a history of academic excellence and the physical capacity for enrollment growth,” said Greg Salsbury, President of Western Colorado University. That makes Western Colorado University the ideal place for the new school.”
