CMC to continue seeking four-year degrees

Daily News staff report

In the Dec. 6 meeting of the Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees, the trustees unanimously directed college leaders to pursue final approvals for offering bachelor’s degrees in business administration and sustainability.

Though last spring the community college received approvals from the state Legislature and governor to offer up to five bachelor’s degrees, it still needs final approvals from the Higher Learning Commission and the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. Administrators and faculty at the college are going through the complex steps required for those approvals, demonstrating their ability to offer a quality educational experience to upper-division students.

The trustees also approved that administrators seek a liquor license for the campus in Breckenridge. With the board’s blessing, they can now approach local and state authorities to obtain a liquor license. By having such a license, they would have the option to serve alcoholic beverages at events held in the auditorium and in connection with Culinary Institute courses – for example, sommelier classes and wine pairing with cooking classes.
