1Dr. Carrie Besnette Hauser CMC President and CEOLETTER FROM LEADERSHIPKristin Heath ColonCMC Vice President for Advancement and Foundation CEOPatricia TheoboldCMC Board of Trustees Board President 2015-2021Elaine KeltonCMC Foundation Board Chair What a year! The 2020-2021 academic year was one of the fastest moving, constantly changing years in the history of Colorado Mountain College.At a time when some colleges and universities across the nation are closing or merging due to low enrollment or other challenges, CMC is not only open and operating, we are rapidly adapting and evolving to best serve our communities and students. In fact, in spite of the global pandemic that hit our mountain communities hard, CMC graduated one of its largest classes ever this past May.In these pages, we are delighted to share information with you about each of our 11 campuses, along with dynamic collegewide initiatives that are shaping the lives of our students and positively impacting our mountain region. A few highlights: The nationwide nursing shortage has been particularly acute on Colorado’s Western Slope, prompting us to make strategic investments in new state-of-the-art nursing simulation laboratories in Steamboat Springs, Spring Valley and Breckenridge. We’ve also grown our capacity to oer more scholarships and nancial aid to nursing students who are committed to learning in and serving our local communities. Thanks to our local property tax support, Colorado Mountain College remains one of the most aordable bachelor’s degrees in the nation. However, the cost of living has become a major hurdle for our students and our local employers. Our forward-thinking Board of Trustees has approved $40 million to build new apartment-style housing units at four of our campus locations, where we have existing land to utilize. While CMC’s contributions won’t solve the housing crisis, we strive to be part of the solution. Partnering with our communities is central to CMC’s mission, vision and values. As signature points of pride, CMC is now ocially designated as a Dual Mission Institution and is actively engaged with over 400 colleges and universities across the country that oer an intentional blend of bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees and certicate programs as well as a mix of career-focused and liberal arts oerings. We are also excited to share our recent designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution. This means that over 25% of CMC’s student body is Hispanic/Latinx and – most importantly – succeeding. With this designation comes access to new federal funding that enhances services for all students at CMC.It’s been a big year at Colorado Mountain College. Thank you for your support and condence. We’re excited to share a few stories of IMPACT this past year in the pages that follow.In partnership,

19DORIS J. DEWTON (1947-2021) redened what dedicated community engagement looks like at CMC. She served three terms on the College’s elected Board of Trustees, eight years on the CMC Foundation Board and was a highly engaged member of the Vail Valley Advisory Council, the Scholarship Review Committee, and the President’s Advisory Council. She was also a visionary donor and the creator of the Vail Valley’s HERO Scholarship Fund, which has awarded $750,000 in scholarships to date, supporting over 500 students at the Vail Valley campus alone. Doris knew the power of education to transform lives and made it her business to open those doors of opportunity to any student who had the dream but not the means. She never sought attention or credit, but gave fully of herself each and every day. The passion she poured into our institution and into our communities at large is a true testament to her life of service. CMC would not be the college it is today without Doris, and we are forever grateful.COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS CMC Vail Valley is most impactful when partnering with organizations that share our same passion. My Future Pathways and Guardian Scholars are two local non-prots who t that mold. In addition to being generous donors to CMC, they provide life coaching, mentoring and personalized attention for many of our rst-generation students, creating a win-win-win for their organizations, the college and most importantly the students.EXPANDED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES Earlier this year, the state of Colorado approved Eagle County School District to create the rst rural “Pathways in Technology Early College” (P-Tech) High School, an innovative partnership between the school district, local employers and CMC. Convenient that the high school is right next door! The program prepares students for high-skill jobs of the future, allowing them to graduate with a high school diploma and a post-secondary, industry-recognized degree. P-Tech students have exposure to possible career paths through job shadowing and internships. IN-PERSON CLASSES Science courses, such as Anatomy and Physiology, continue to be some of the most popular oerings at the Vail Valley campus. Despite challenges over the past year, our students’ enthusiasm for hands-on learning never wavered.
20CMC’s Campaign for Rural Nursing Success helps nursing students on Colorado’s Western Slope get the training they need to step into the workplace. This new fund will provide: New, high-delity nursing simulation laboratories in Steamboat Springs, Spring Valley and Breckenridge Scholarships and innovative nancial aid options for CMC nursing studentsCMC’s investment in laboratories will enable our nursing program to oer the highest quality educational experience in the most ecient manner. Students can complete up to 50% of their clinical hours in the simulation lab, reducing the need for costly travel to distant training sites. Simulation is proven to foster the critical thinking, self-condence and quick reexes necessary to prepare students for the clinical environment.“The shortage of available registered nurses on the Western Slope, and throughout the state, is perhaps the most critical issue facing our healthcare system. CMC is committed to addressing this need for our communities. By building new facilities, growing our faculty and providing critical scholarship support for our students, we are rising to the challenge. Ultimately, our communities will benet as more CMC nursing graduates join the patient care workforce in our towns. I hope you will join me in supporting CMC’s commitment to this important eort.” – Tito Liotta, MD, orthopedic surgeon, CMC Foundation board member, and chairman of the Campaign for Rural Nursing SuccessCARBONDALE RESIDENT PAUL BUSHONG has pledged $1.5 million as a challenge match and is inviting other donors to join him in supporting academic improvements at Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley campus.RURAL NURSING SUCCESS20

That’s why dual Finnish and American citizen Annika Malacinski chose CMC to pursue her studies. Annika is now ranked 11th in the world in the Nordic Combined and is aiming to compete in the 2026 Winter Olympic in Milan, Italy. That’s where CMC online courses t in. “I only took a couple of online classes at a time while I was competing; all of a sudden my free time was spent learning about nutrition, psychology and environmental ethics, etc.,” Annika says. “It was eye opening seeing how well the program t me. Teachers were easy to communicate with and the online learning dashboard was so easy to work with.” Now that she is in Europe this winter jumping and skiing, the livestream option makes learning even more engaging.
