More than just an office, The Arts at CC seeks to make the arts an integral part of all members of our community. It will amplify the important work being done with the arts within the academic mission of the college and find new ways to collaborate across campus for greater impact and access.

Colorado College has a longstanding tradition of excellence in the arts. We provide robust curricular offerings through our visual, performance, literary, and media arts departments as well as offer rich and diverse programming in formal and informal spaces across campus. Our alliance with the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center brings these opportunities for connection and engagement to a whole new level.
