The Butler Center’s Signature program is our 1st Generation Collegiate program.
It is a block-ly gathering of 1st Generation (enrolled) College students.
This year, we would like to more intentionally connect our 1st Gen students to CC faculty and staff who were 1st Gen graduates. Please email Pearl Leonard-Rock at plr@coloradocollege.edu if interested in learning more.

As you may know, we are moving forward with our national search for the next chief academic officer of the college. We have partnered with the nationally recognized executive search firm, Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, on the search. Shelly Storbeck, Managing Partner, and Anne Koellhoffer, Associate, will visit campus on Wednesday, September 6th, for important pre-search conversations.

The consulting team is eager to have your insights into Colorado College’s strengths and needs as well as your views on the kind of leadership we should be seeking. Your comments will be summarized and reflected in the search profile, the primary outreach tool for the search. Please rest assured that comments will not be attributed to any one individual personally, so we hope you will be candid.

You are invited to meet with the consultants on September 6 from 10:45-11:45 a.m. in Slocum Commons.

If you are unable to participate, you are encouraged to send your thoughts and suggestions of candidates to ColoradoProvost17@storbecksearch.com.

We deeply value your insights in this critically important process. Thank you in advance for your participation

Colorado College is excited to host the annual James ‘Al’ Johnson Memorial Speech and Debate Tournament September 22-24 and we need your help. The tournament runs Friday-Sunday during first block break and is expected to have record attendance.

We need 12-15 judges (that’s you!) to judge NPDA (National Parliamentary Debate Association) debate and/or Speech events. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY, WE PROVIDE A FUN 20-30 MINUTE TRAINING. You will receive pay of $15/round (rounds last about 1-1.25 hours), and we will keep you well-fed throughout the duration of the tournament. We do need staff to commit to at least one day (rather than 2 or 3 hours here and there) as your name gets entered into a computer system by tabulation. Judging is a lot of fun–and I guarantee you will leave inspired by the work put forth by these students. Please sign up to judge by contacting Sarah Hinkle at X6509 or shinkle@coloradocollege.edu. The deadline to sign up is September 10. Thank you!

In each concert week, additional rehearsals with orchestra are called from 7:30-10:00 p.m.

The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Academic Language Therapy Association with sponsorship from the Colorado Literacy and Learning Center presents: “The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia.” We will be hosting a screening of this award winning documentary film followed by an engaging question and answer session with a panel of local dyslexia experts: professionals, teachers, administrators, special education personnel, clinicians, parents, and students.

If you are witnessing a child struggling with reading and/or spelling and are interested in learning more about dyslexia, this is the event for you. Also, it is free of charge although donations will be accepted.

Come learn more about this very common learning disability and bring your questions! Thursday, August 31st, 7 pm, Library 21C in Briargate, PPLD Colorado Springs.
