Diversity at CC
The cross disciplinary perspective of a liberal-arts education offers unparalleled opportunities for intercultural engagement. Where personal interactions, in and outside of the classroom promote exposure to diverse social environments where students engage in dialogue about new ideas and complex issues. An academic and social environment where students become more adept at understanding multiple perspectives and more capable of critical thinking in ways that enhance perspective, quality of life and success in a diverse world of work and community.
Here's a secret:
Colorado College values all persons and seeks to learn from their diverse experiences and perspectives. Achieving diversity of origin and thought is critical to fulfilling the College’s aim to provide a liberal arts education that is among the finest in the country. To that aim, the Diversity Task Force promotes campus-wide diversity. Students, faculty, and staff work together to instigate, coordinate, and support diversity issues among all members of the CC community.
Resources and People
The Office of Minority and International Students (OMIS) promotes an atmosphere of constructive pluralism on the CC campus by fostering inclusiveness. We promote learning, discovery and scholarship about gender, sexual orientation, social justice, privilege, cultural and ethnic bias and various intersections of identities.
Our office advises over 15 minority and international student organizations. They work hand-in-hand with OMIS to promote education and awareness, initiate programming and events for individual groups as well as the greater campus community, and provide inclusive, welcoming places for minority/international students and those interested in minority/international student life. All groups meet regularly during each block. For more information on these groups and meeting times, please contact our office. Membership is open to all interested students regardless of cultural background.
