The Catalyst student publication began in 1969. It is published weekly during the academic year. The Catalyst is produced and managed exclusively by the students of Colorado College for the benefit of the college community and the surrounding local area, the Catalyst aims to bring general interest and academic-oriented news, ideas, and opinions into greater collective view—to act as a catalyst for informed debate. The newspaper is published under the auspices of Cutler Publications, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit independent of Colorado College.
Colorado College faculty, students and the building architect, Antoine Predock, discuss the merging of disciplines with collaborative teaching and learning opportunities that the new Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center will allow.
