Building on the Block: Summer Institutes

The Charge: Create summer programs consisting of linked thematic blocks.

What's Happening: CC embraced intensive, hands-on learning in our 2014 Summer Institutes through thematically linked courses that integrated intellectual, academic, practical, and professional experience. Advancing our strategic initiative to build programs to support a new generation of learners, the Summer Film Institute: 2014 Documentary Project focused on documentary filmmaking in Colorado and provided students with the opportunity to develop filming, interviewing, and researching skills in creating their own documentary. "It was eye-opening when I got to go deeper with my work," said Djake Carroll '16, of participating this summer. "The only reason the film I made ended up being something watchable was because I had the time to try a couple of things that failed and I wouldn't have had time if it were during the year."
