CMC President Hauser Speaks at Roaring Fork Cultural Council @ Thunder River Theater
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

New college president to address how access to higher education transforms lives, communities.

Dr. Carrie Besnette HauserWhat would draw a high-powered, rising star – one who has built a career on enhancing educational access for people who might not otherwise have that opportunity – to serve the small towns on Colorado’s Western Slope?

As Dr. Carrie Besnette Hauser explains, it’s because of the opportunity to help lead Colorado Mountain College toward becoming the premier and most innovative institution of its kind.

Hauser, the ninth and newest president of CMC, and the second woman in the job, will address her vision for the college and for student success as the inaugural speaker of the 2014 Roaring Fork Cultural Council speakers’ series in Carbondale March 10. She will also share her thoughts about how access to affordable, high-quality education can transform lives and elevate communities’ economic and social vitality.

“Our new strategic plan is driving us toward becoming the most inclusive, innovative, student-centered college in the country,” Hauser says. “We believe this vision will help us to elevate the economic, social, cultural and environmental vitality of the incredible communities we serve.”
