CMC bill to be signed today in Breckenridge

BRECKENRIDGE – Gov. Bill Ritter is set to sign the CMC baccalaureate bill at the Breckenridge campus today, which will OK the initiative – to offer four-year degrees – at the state level. The signing presentation is scheduled for 3 p.m. in the new building’s auditorium, and Ritter will be accompanied by state Sen. Dan Gibbs and state Rep. Christine Scanlan. 

Currently, the college offers only two-year associate’s degrees. Once the bill gets a signature, CMC must then take the necessary steps for accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission and get the blessing of the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. To get final approvals, CMC must be able to demonstrate the need for new degree programs, as well as its ability to administer and fund them.

Other bills will be signed as well at the ceremony, including one related to better traffic management on I-70 and another aimed at helping Colorado youth spend more time outdoors.
