From the UMC’s website:

In 1947, Colorado Governor Lee Knous proclaimed the planned University of Colorado student union a memorial to “those who served in these great wars.” And so the CU student center was named “University Memorial Center” (UMC) in tribute to all Colorado veterans, men and women, who have served or are currently serving our country.
