SUMMIT COUNTY – Colorado Mountain College has heard from members of the community who have been approached by door-to-door sales representatives who may be implying they are fundraising for the CMC study abroad program.

“It’s not clear whether these are students who are doing door-to-door sales as a legitimate job, or something different entirely,” said Dave Askeland, college vice president and campus dean for Breckenridge and Dillon. “Just so that there are no misunderstandings going forward, we want the community to know that this is not being done on behalf of Colorado Mountain College.”

“Colorado Mountain College would never send students or employees door to door to solicit funds,” said Kristin Heath Colon, CEO of the CMC Foundation. “The college does, however, have a robust study abroad program, and students who need support to have this opportunity. We invite people to go to our website to learn more about taking these classes, including applying for scholarships, at coloradomtn.edu/study-abroad.”

Colon said, “Many of our students have not had the opportunity to travel. Those of us who have had the chance to learn about and visit other countries know how life-changing it can be. Anyone who would like to support students in the study abroad program can donate securely through the CMC Foundation at cmcfoundation.org or by calling the CMC Foundation at 970-947-8378.”
