Colorado Mountain College’s campus in Steamboat Springs will offer a Sustainability Living/Learning Community experience especially for incoming freshman!

What is it? The Sustainability Living/Learning Community (SLC) offers students an exciting chance to get to know faculty and staff members and other students who are interested in doing something about the long-term health and integrity of communities and the planet. Students who enroll in this program will take a set of four classes together, travel together to learn about sustainability in the Southwest, and live near each other in the residence hall. They will also be introduced to sustainability-oriented clubs and be encouraged to take part in club and other extra-curricular activities.

Why is CMC offering this program? The SLC offers incoming freshmen who are interested in sustainability and perhaps interested in the B.A. program in Sustainability Studies an opportunity to immediately engage in sustainability-oriented coursework and extra-curricular activities. You do not have to be majoring in Sustainability Studies to take part in this learning community. The SLC is for anyone interested in sustainability and anyone who would like to learn more about it. Come join our dynamic living/learning community, and be part of some serious learning and serious fun!
