We’re seeking dedicated/detail-oriented students to join our student staff for Summer Session and the upcoming academic year. Experience in music is preferred, though not required; the successful applicant is responsible for serving our visitors (both within the CC community and the larger El Paso county public); maintaining our materials, and partaking in specific projects that enhance our services and collections.

The typical student works 10 hours per week during the academic year; summer staff may work more hours, depending upon students’ schedules. We are committed to hiring students with work study awards whenever possible; this is not such concern during Summer Session.

Interested? Come by and talk to us in our temporary space, Room 20, in Packard Hall. Or email dstevens@coloradocollege.edu. We’re also available by phone: 719 389-6560. Applications are available in Room 20.

We will be interviewing in Block 8. Appointments may be scheduled soon.

Theatre/Dance 8th block production of “Coriolanus, or Helter-Skelter”
Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Center, Thursday, May 9th @ 7:30, Friday, May 10th @ 7:30 and Sat. May 11th at 3:00pm (matinee) No evening performance (you are welcome Llamapalooza).

A mashup of William Shakespeare and the Beatles, devised by Tom Lindblade and designed by Max Sarkowsky ’20, Gypsy Ames, & Heidi Eckwall.

“Shakespeare’s great tragedy is a meditation on failed political leadership and the senseless violence and corrosion left in its wake. The chaos of Coriolanus’ Rome is reflected in the helter-skelter fall of a dynasty and a society, showing what happens when personal ambition and grievance supplant ethical norms and moral order. A play for our times.”

Tickets available at the Worner Student Desk or at the door.
Free with CC ID, $5.00 general Public

H. Chase Stone Lecture featuring Claudia Goldin: “A Long Road: The Quest for Career and Family”
Richard F. Celeste Theatre
Thursday, May 02, 2019
5:00 pm – 06:15 pm

Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, 825 N. Cascade Ave.
Free to the Public: No ticket necessary

Sponsored by: H. Chase Stone Memorial Fund
“In 1963, Betty Friedan wrote about college-educated women who were frustrated as stay-at-home moms, noting that their problem “has no name.” Today, a half-century later, female college graduates are largely on career tracks, but their earnings and promotions-relative to those of the men they graduated with-make them look like they’ve been sideswiped. According to many, their problem goes by many names and has various solutions. We should coach women to be more competitive and train them to negotiate better. We need to expose managers’ implicit bias. The government should impose gender-parity mandates on corporate boards and enforce an equal-pay-for-equal-work doctrine.

Although the public and private discourse has brought important issues and concerns to light, we’re all guilty of forgetting that the problem is enormous in scale and that it has a history. A single company slapped on the wrist, one more woman who makes it to the board room, a few progressive tech leaders who go on paternity leave-such solutions are the economic equivalent of tossing a band-aid to someone with cancer. They haven’t worked to erase the differences in the gender pay gap. They will never provide a complete solution to the twin problems of gender inequality and couple inequity because they treat the symptoms and not the disease. We must unlearn our many names for the problem and travel the long road to see it for what it is.”
