CMC President's Advisory Council

President’s Advisory Council

A bold-thinking group of strategic advisors committed to guiding Colorado Mountain College to even greater heights

The Colorado Mountain College President’s Advisory Council is a national group of volunteer advisors with distinguished and diverse backgrounds. While the President’s Advisory Council has no formal authority, members are nominated and selected based on their ability to offer counsel, generate big ideas and extend influence, connections, strategic thinking, resources and passion to support the college and its president.

The council meets annually at a CMC location and occasionally by conference or video call. Periodic meetings with the CMC president may also be arranged as needed and desired.

Jim Calaway, the late Carbondale philanthropist and former CMC Foundation board member, founded the CMC President’s Advisory Council (previously called the Board of Overseers). His vision was to launch and sustain a prominent, selective and influential group of strategic advisors who care about and support CMC’s mission and to establish a thought-provoking, dynamic forum to help guide the college and advance its innovation and excellence.
