Each year, the State of the Rockies Project team, which includes Colorado College undergraduate students, recent graduates and a faculty adviser, conducts extensive research and creates a comprehensive report on the region. This year's report, released April 5, examines critical issues facing the eight-state Rocky Mountain region. This is the sixth year of the project.
