CMC's Mission: To Create a Better Future

Partnerships are key to the success of Colorado Mountain College, its communities and friends

We are focused on creating a better future for our students, our communities, our partners and our team members. By building partnerships we hope to enrich the lives of everyone we work with.

Come join us! Colorado Mountain College provides many ways to connect, not just in the classroom. Our trustees are local elected citizens who oversee the direction of the College, which is a locally supported district.

Our Community

Building community partnerships is a core part of our CMC mission.

A technical lab in Leadville, a senior volunteer program in Garfield County, a center for the arts, a training program geared to single parents, a community consortium to improve and protect the Lake Fork of the Arkansas River watershed — all programs Colorado Mountain College is proud to partner with.
