Welcome to the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities

The Institute was established in 2001 by the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado System. Its establishment was made possible by a generous endowment from William (Bill) and Claudia Coleman. Our mission is to catalyze and integrate advances in science, engineering, and technology to promote the quality of life and independent living of people with cognitive disabilities. The Institute is actively engaged in supporting research, development, dissemination, and education in cognitive disabilities on all campuses of the University of Colorado: in Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, and at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. We are committed to providing scientific, technological, and public policy leadership to strengthen the voice of persons with cognitive disabilities and their families in our society.
