Welcome to Student Life!
The division of Student Life supports and enhances the academic mission of Colorado College by helping to create a campus environment that fosters student engagement within a community of learning. We strive to encourage connections among and between students, staff, faculty, and the greater communities and to build understanding of our interdependence while attending to the needs of the individual. We encourage individual student development by emphasizing autonomy and responsibility, and our non-codified structure allows full consideration of context and the student as a whole person.
Our residential and co-curricular programming reinforces and supports student learning by linking students’ residential and academic classroom experiences. We help students develop and utilize life skills such as critical thinking and thoughtful decision making which reinforce the conversations taking place in their classrooms. Our professional staff fulfill an important role in this process by assisting students and empowering them to make appropriate decisions.
