About University Of Colorado Denver

History

The University of Colorado Denver began as an extension center to the University of Colorado. The Extension Center was permanently set up in Denver in 1938, at the C.A. Johnson Building at 509 17th Street, where a single, full-time faculty member ran the school with the help of part-time teachers. The University of Colorado created the Department of Medicine and Surgery in September 1883 in the Old Main building on the Boulder campus. The Department of Nursing opened in 1898. The last two classes were shifted to Denver by 1892, because of the larger population meaning more abundance of sick people. This would become the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (UCHSC). In 2004, UC Denver and UC Health Sciences Center merged. It was named the University of Colorado Denver and Health Sciences Center (UCDHSC).  In 2006, the Fitzsimons campus of UCHSC was renamed the Anschutz Medical Campus to recognize the philanthropic donations from Philip and Nancy Anschutz. On October 29, 2007, the board of regents renamed UCDHSC as the University of Colorado Denver, unifying the Anschutz Medical Campus and the Denver Campus.
