Representatives of colleges from around the nation that define themselves as “dual mission” institutions will converge on Glenwood Springs this week for the annual Dual Mission Summit, including a visit from Gov. Jared Polis.
Polis is scheduled to help kick off the event during a dinner event at the Hotel Colorado on Wednesday evening. After dinner, the governor is to be joined by Colorado Mountain College President and CEO Carrie Hauser and American Council on Education President Ted Mitchell to talk about the post-pandemic future of postsecondary education and the nation’s college classification system, which has begun to recognize dual mission institutions.
Dual mission schools, such as CMC, not only function as a community college, offering certificates and associate’s degrees, but also a range of four-year bachelor’s degrees and various forms of continuing education under one roof.
