CCE Covid-19 Policy

As a part of Colorado College, the Collaborative for Community Engagement follows the broader guidelines and approach of the college in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. You may read the full CC risk-mitigation protocols and policies here.


The CCE's mission is to promote engaged citizenship, cultivating a sense of shared responsibility for addressing collective problems, recognizing that we each have a stake in one another's futures. On a fundamental level, being a citizen means to intentionally and critically bear in mind the social consequences of personal actions and decisions. In this moment, a critical way to be an engaged citizen is by reducing social contact to help stop the spread of the virus locally and around the world.

Behaviors and practices that we strongly encourage all students engaging or planning to engage off-campus to adhere to are as follows:

  1. Submit your vaccination or exemption information with Colorado College as soon as you can. Colorado College requires all students, faculty, and staff who are learning, living, working on, or accessing campus for the 2021-22 academic year to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved exemption.
  2. When CC on-campus policies and community partner engagement guidelines differ, adhere to the more conservative of the two. Our partners may work with populations that are more vulnerable and supporting them may require additional layers of safe behavior.
  3. All people on campus must wear a mask while in public spaces indoors. We encourage students who are engaging in the community to meet virtually or outdoors if possible. If you must be inside, please try to stay in well-ventilated areas. If you are working indoors with others, wear a mask, regardless of whether you or they are vaccinated.
  4. Maintain safe social distancing practices.
  5. Keep a mask with you at all times, in case circumstances change and are in a situation where a mask would be warranted.
  6. If you are feeling ill, please refrain from engaging with others in person.

If you would like to set up a time to talk about your ideas for community engagement during the pandemic, or have questions or concerns, please schedule a meeting with a CCE staff member here or email

This continues to be an evolving situation, and any additional information or changes to these guidelines will be made and communicated as quickly as possible. 

Anyone interested in volunteering with Colorado Springs School District 11 should also read through and abide by their guidelines, which can be found here.
