CAMPUS AT A GLANCE (brief description)

Drawing upon the adventurous spirit of the Rocky Mountain West, we challenge students, one course at a time, to develop those habits of intellect and imagination that will prepare them for learning and leadership throughout their lives.


Established as a coeducational institution in 1874, Colorado College employs a unique Block Plan in which students and professors engage in one course at a time for three and a half weeks. During a block, students not only receive classroom instruction, but they also may participate in field work, research, or community-based learning.



Location: about 1 hour south of the state capital, Denver

Enrollment: 1,947

MORE ABOUT US (our partners, trips, structure, best or unique practices)

As part of your Annual Report 2008, we ask all campuses to add 1-2 paragraphs here that describe a few highlights of the programmatic activities from this year.  For instance, you may choose to capture an aspect of a very successful trip or a campus-wide service initiatives.  Or you may describe some key work you did with community partners, or your efforts to incorporate community-based research with faculty.  As part of your larger Campus Profile, these few paragraphs should provide a sense of elements that are particularly strong and/or unique about your Bonner Program.  You can delete this instruction text when you are done.
