Colorado Mountain College's vision of being the most inclusive and innovative student-centered college in the nation requires accommodating the ever-changing needs of it's students and communities. From new technology to new buildings, CMC is always growing. The CMC Foundation supports this growth by utilizing capital campaigns to raise the funds necessary for these projects.

Breckenridge Nursing Simulation & Outdoor Skills Lab

CMC is responding to the growing need for trained health care providers in our mountain community by constructing a new high-fidelity nursing simulation lab that will double the number of nursing students we can enroll annually. Plans also include the addition of an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) / Outdoor Education Technician (OUT) / Wilderness Emergency Medical Services (WEMS) skills lab, including a two-story repelling wall, to facilitate training of qualified graduates that can respond during emergency care situations.

The Promise of Spring Valley

More than 50 years ago, local ranchers donated over 800 acres to Colorado Mountain College to create the Spring Valley Campus. Today, we are expanding on that original generosity and vision. Responding to the needs of the 21st century student, Spring Valley is currently undergoing a transformation of the campus infrastructure.

Campaign for Rural Nursing Success

Colorado Mountain College offers associate and bachelor’s degrees in nursing at its campuses in Spring Valley-Glenwood Springs, Breckenridge and Steamboat Springs. Your gift to the Rural Nursing Success Fund will enable CMC to grow the pipeline of nurses in our mountain communities and give them the tools they need to succeed.

The Campaign for CMC Aspen

CMC Aspen can do more. We can aspire to give the community skilled workers, future leaders, problem solvers, and an incubator of creativity. We can house students, grow local talent, and match people who need opportunity with opportunity in Aspen. We can prepare the people who make Aspen work.
