Upcoming Debate on CC Campus!
In collaboration with the CCE Political Advocacy Coalition, the Collaborative for Community Engagement at Colorado College, Colorado Springs Independent, Colorado Springs Business Journal, and Trails and Open Spaces Coalition are co-hosting the Energy and Open Spaces Debate: A Town/Gown Collaborative, for the upcoming Colorado Springs City Council Election.
In preparation for the debate, which will be in Packard Hall from 6:30-8:00pm on March 7, all students, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to submit questions using this form through February 25. Questions will be reviewed by a panel of experts, civilian and students for use in the debate.
As a non-profit organization, Colorado College remains nonpartisan and does not endorse any political party or candidate seeking elected office. CC is committed to its educational mission, supporting critical thinking and analysis of political candidates and encouraging civic engagement in the democratic process.
Strategic Planning Update
We launched a strategic planning process in January 2018 with one core goal — to forge a strengthened vision for how the CCE could cultivate and deepen community-engaged teaching, research, and action in ways that advance the mission and strategic plan of the college.
Following a “Semester of Listening” in the spring, which engaged 500 faculty, students, staff, community partners, and residents, CCE staff participated in a “Summer of Planning” to strategize how the office could best realize this shared vision.
In the CCE’s plan summary, you will find a new vision, mission, foundational aspirations, and exemplar strategic initiatives that illustrate core strategies moving forward. View the full plan.
