The Colorado Education Initiative

The Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) (formerly the Colorado Legacy Foundation) believes that increased student achievement for all Colorado students requires effective leaders in every school, effective educators in every classroom, and healthy and engaging environments that ignite a passion for learning in every student.


The mission of The Colorado Education Initiative is to catalyze bold, comprehensive improvement in Colorado public education to ensure that all students graduate college and career-ready.
