CMC: Celebrating 50 years of education

 With a slew of recent improvements and new programming, Colorado Mountain College, which has a residential campus in Steamboat Springs, is quietly becoming one of the top mountain colleges in the Rockies. This year the college is planning community and on-campus celebrations for its 50th anniversary.

Everything weve done makes our campus more collegiate,says Steamboat Springs dean of student affairs Brian Hoza. It augments what we can do for our students and the community. And this year, through our 50th anniversary celebrations, we want to thank our community for all theyve done to support us over the years.

The college offers five four-year bachelors degrees in sustainability studies, business administration, nursing, and new last year, teacher education and applied science. The Steamboat campus offers all but the teacher education degree; the nursing degree is hybrid, with most classes available online and a minimal amount of travel to other campuses.

In 2012, CMC opened its $18 million, 60,000-square-foot academic and student center overlooking downtown Steamboat, housing administrative offices, classrooms, an auditorium, a cafeteria and more. Combine this with new course offerings in everything from resort management and hospitality to sustainability studies and culinary programs, and its a true cornerstone of the community.

In 2013, 2014 and 2015, the U.S. Department of Education ranked CMC the countrys third most affordable public college offering bachelors degrees. In 2014, the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program named it one of the nations top 150 colleges offering associate degrees, allowing CMC to compete for the 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.
