CMC & MindUP Teacher Education Conference

Colorado Mountain College is pleased to partner with MindUP, the signature program of The Goldie Hawn Foundation, to bring evidence based and rigorously researched social-emotional learning tools to our mountain communities and schools.

Rooted firmly in neuroscience, MindUP gives children, and their teachers, the knowledge and skills they need to manage stress, regulate emotions and face the challenges of the 21st century with optimism, resilience and compassion.

The conference meets for two days, September 20-21, at the CMC Morgridge Commons in downtown Glenwood Springs. The conference tuition will be provided at no cost to CMC student teachers, local educators and college personnel interested in strategies for improving the mental well-being and learning of students in their classrooms. Light breakfast and lunch will be served.

Priority will be given to teachers within the Colorado Mountain College service area. If space is available, cost for additional conference attendees will be $220 per person.

This event is made possible through a grant awarded by the Colorado Department of Higher Education and by the sponsorship of True Nature Healing Arts and Amoré Realty, both of Carbondale, CO.
