Colorado College is proud of its history in Colorado and the Pikes Peak Region. Established in 1874 -- just two years after our home city of Colorado Springs, on land donated by the city’s founders -- CC has been an integral part of the community as we've grown up together for more than a century and a quarter. The college contributes nearly $110 million to the region's economy each year.

Our commitment to our community

One of the college’s institutional goals is to promote involvement in and responsibility to one’s community. Our students learn citizenship from faculty who are committed members of their neighborhoods, and 84 percent of the student population take part in some sort of community service. College administrators actively listen and seek out neighbors for input in community-minded issues. The college’s cultural, intellectual, and sports programs all add to the varied fabric of the region. Expert faculty members serve as invaluable resources for community groups, public offices, and the news media.

Colorado College is a member of the Greater Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Colorado Springs Economic Development Corporation, the Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber of Commerce, Colorado Springs Black Chamber of Commerce, and the Colorado Springs Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
