In the Student Life Division, we bring the College’s values and mission to life through our ability to connect, integrate, and engage students. We work together to create a strong sense of place and belonging. We are integrally involved in the student experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. Our goal is to ensure that students can maximize and leverage their time at CC and truly thrive. To that end, we provide an array of intentional and relevant support and resource systems to help our students learn and to develop as leaders.
Student Initiative Resources
The Office of Student Life has emergency funding for high-need students and students in crisis facing unexpected financial needs. These funds are administered by John Lauer, Associate Vice President for Student Life, located in Bemis Hall 120, and are made possible through the generous donations from alumni, parents, and friends of Colorado College.
Students in need are asked to meet in person with John whenever possible; however alternative communication is considered on a case by case basis.
The Student Life Division maintains a log of student concerns, and how they have been responded to. If you have a concern that you would like to log, please contact the Assistant to the Vice President, Zak Kroger to set up an appointment.
It is important to note that not all resolutions may be what the student was hoping for.
Time Off and Withdrawals
If you are interested in taking a block off, taking a leave of absence (multiple blocks), or withdrawing from the college, please contact the Director of Student Support, Teresa Leopold at (719) 389-6141.
