Our Thoughts are with Orlando


photo of cloudsOur hearts ache with the people of Orlando, and the LGBTQ community everywhere, following the weekend’s senseless tragedy in Florida. I am saddened to hear of yet another incident in which hate has driven someone to commit such a crime; it is only through compassion for others, acceptance of our differences and similarities, and kindness that we can move forward as a society, and as a college. Please keep in your thoughts and prayers the injured, the families of the victims, the first responders, and all who are carrying on through their profound grief. Colorado Mountain College strives every day to fulfill its vision to be the most inclusive college in the nation, one where the fundamental safety, well-being, and happiness of all our students and employees is center to who we are as an institution and to each other. – Dr. Carrie Besnette Hauser, CMC President and CEO
