    About Colorado College

    Colorado College succeeds in its mission of educating for our time when it graduates women and men with mental agility and the skills of critical judgment, persons who have learned how to learn. Taking advantage of small classes and the unique learning opportunities of the Block Plan, Colorado College provides a variety of stimulating environments for intellectual development, creative expression, and personal growth. In the studio and on the stage, in classroom and library and laboratory, in residence halls and on playing fields, in the local community and in foreign countries, the College confronts students with unfamiliar perspectives and new possibilities of thought and action. We explore with them the complexities of the natural world, the achievements of the human past, and the urgent social and moral issues of the present. We teach them how to recognize relevant evidence in various fields of inquiry and how to weigh that evidence. We press them to read carefully, think critically, reflect thoughtfully, and express their ideas effectively, with precision and grace. We encourage their personal quest for a worthy vision that can inspire both action and hope and will enable them to help create a more humane world. Colorado College is distinctive in its conviction that active learning happens best when students pursue a single subject of study for several weeks in small classes in which no ticking clock can interrupt the animated exchange of ideas. We are confident that the learning opportunities made possible by our distinctive curricular system foster a kind of intellectual engagement that will continue to enrich the lives of Colorado College graduates as they become leaders in their professions and communities.
