Colorado College's 10:1 student to faculty ratio ensures that professors and pupils have the privilege of face-to-face interaction and in-class discussion. Of CC's 167 full-time professors, 98.8% hold the highest degree in their field.
Because they only teach one course at a time, CC professors are available to encourage and assist individual students in their endeavors. As a result, our faculty are able to expect a special degree of academic independence, and students have room to flourish. Creative writing majors are respected as poets, math students as mathematicians, and sociology majors as social scientists.
