Volunteering for the Office of Sustainability is a wonderful opportunity for students who are passionate about making Colorado College a more environmentally responsible and sustainable campus. Volunteer duties will vary for each category. Volunteer responsibilities may include event planning, website management, curriculum designation, etc. This is a flexible position with many opportunities for growth and learning!

. Community Engagement
. STARS : Sustainable Tracking, Assessment & Reporting System
. Greenhouse Gas Inventory

Take a well-deserved break from the start of Block 1 and bring new friends or meet up with old friends for an all-pie evening. Start at Taste for dinner, featuring a special pie menu just for this show. Then get free tickets to Theater Grottesco’s “Pie.”

Theater Grottesco is an ensemble theater company that creates original performances. Their website describes the show like this: “PIE is a layman’s exploration of what happens when you don’t know what to do next, inspired by the Carl Sagan quote, “If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe…” and the Kate Tempest poem Brand New Ancients, “Yes, the gods are on the park bench, the gods are on the bus, / The gods are all here, the gods are in us.” Trailer here for a glimpse of the style. Not to be missed!

Thursday, August 30 – Richard F. Celeste Theatre in the Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center beginning at 7:00pm.
Join the Political Science Department in welcoming to Colorado College the
W.P. Carey Lecture featuring Joseph E. Stiglitz, an American economist and a professor at Columbia University. He is also the co-chair of the High-Level Expert Group on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress at the OECD, and the Chief Economist of the Roosevelt Institute. A recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (2001) and the John Bates Clark Medal (1979), he is a former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank and a former member and chairman of the (US president’s) Council of Economic Advisers. In 2000, Stiglitz founded the Initiative for Policy Dialogue, a think tank on international development based at Columbia University. He has been a member of the Columbia faculty since 2001 and received that university’s highest academic rank (university professor) in 2003. In 2011 Stiglitz was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Known for his pioneering work on asymmetric information, Stiglitz’s work focuses on income distribution, risk, corporate governance, public policy, macroeconomics and globalization. He is the author of numerous books, and several bestsellers. His most recent titles are Globalization and Its Discontents Revisited, The Euro, Rewriting the Rules of the American Economy and The Great Divide.

Got Rave?
With YOUR safety at the top of our mind, Colorado College Campus Safety is launching Guardian, a free mobile app that turns your smartphone into a personal safety device and campus resource center.

By downloading the app on your mobile phone, you’ll have access to safety features that directly connect you to campus safety (or 9-1-1 if off-campus) in an emergency situation, as well as the ability to submit anonymous tips should you see something

The Rave Guardian app features campus resources you need most, including a campus call directory with CC contact information as well as a campus content hub.

On behalf of Colorado College Campus Safety, all students, faculty and staff are encouraged to enhance their personal safety and the safety of their friends by downloading the free app. Simply search “Rave Guardian” in the app store on your mobile device.
The app and additional information is available on the Colorado College Campus Safety webpage under emergency preparedness. www.coloradocollege.edu/dotAsset/f599cbc5-ec8d-4e2f-a0c4-71294ce0183a.pdf
