Our Progress: Extending the Reach of CC's Block Plan
Doing more to capitalize on both of these resources offers new opportunities for our students and extends the college’s reach to new constituencies.
Redesigning summer programs and increasing access to the arts are leading to additional progress on our strategic initiatives.
“A priority will be to ensure the summer months provide space for students or faculty to pursue new academic opportunities, whether conducting research with faculty, taking an elective course outside their major, test-driving a new course, or bolstering an existing course with field work that allows students to enjoy the beautiful summer months in Colorado,” says Jim Burke, director of Summer Session.
Burke also chaired the Summer Strategic Plan Project Team that convened in Block 1 to develop recommendations to make Colorado College’s summer program a model for liberal arts institutions, supporting student access, retention, persistence, and success.
