Global Opportunities

Exploring the unknown is kind of like cliff jumping. Standing at the precipice, you wonder how much it will hurt, if water will go up your nose, if there are rocks submerged beneath the foamy surface. But you're dying to experience the adrenaline rush, the existential crisis waiting to happen as you plummet through the air. Not to mention all the pictures your friends will take. No doubt about it - jumping is the hardest part.

You wonder if it’s worth it.

It is.

At CC, we want students, staff, and faculty to experience the world -
both on and away from campus.

The world can be a huge, terrifying place.

But it can also be people, places, and perspectives that you have never seen or encountered before, just waiting to be discovered. It can be a web of new locations where you’ve gained or left behind a piece of yourself. It can be the one scene in a million that you barely glimpsed but will never forget. If you let it, it can change your life forever. Scratch that - it will change your life forever.

Because 81% of students study abroad while at CC, the college has been recognized as a national leader in international education. But international education at Colorado College is about more than just off-campus study. Every year, international resident scholars, guest lecturers, and professional artists come to CC to teach, mentor, and perform. A growing number of international students decide to enroll at CC. Cultural Program Coordinators - from such culturally rich countries as Chile, China, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, and Russia - live in the residential language houses, offering language instruction and cultural events for the entire campus to enjoy.
