About Colorado College
Founded in 1874, Colorado College (CC) is an independent, coeducational, liberal arts and sciences college of bold ideas, located in the beautiful city of Colorado Springs on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains at the foot of Pikes Peak. Ranked among the top 25 National Liberal Arts Colleges by U.S. News and World Report, Colorado College enjoys an unequivocal mission: to provide the finest liberal arts education in the country. What makes Colorado College distinct is its inimitable combination of program, place, and people. Colorado College is a unique institution in terms of geography and pedagogy. Set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado College is the only selective liberal arts college in the region and enrolls just over 2,000 undergraduate students. Through 37 academic departments, faculty engage students directly and prepare them for leadership in the 21st century. The College’s signature academic program, the “Block Plan,” is an intensive academic schedule that allows students to immerse themselves in a single subject for three and a half weeks, rather than balancing several courses over a semester. One example of the College’s innovative work is the integra...tion with the world-renowned Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (now the Fine Arts Center at Colorado College), which has greatly expanded arts programming and sparked new interdisciplinary learning opportunities. Students at Colorado College learn more than theoretical approaches; they learn to embrace the importance of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints and appreciate how diversity enriches their understanding of the world.
