A look back: The UCCS 9/11 Memorial

In 2011, UCCS faculty and students and Air Force engineers from the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station (now the Cheyenne Mountain Space Force Station) worked to design a memorial using World Trade Center artifacts for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

A team of UCCS engineering students designed the memorial, earning praise from the Homeland Security Foundation, which secured another artifact for UCCS to build a companion memorial on campus. The companion memorial points toward the larger version on Cheyenne Mountain.
