The 2014 Colorado College State of Sustainability report benchmarks our campus’ performance across broad sustainability metrics and provides a road map for incremental improvement in the coming years. More importantly, it recommends specific strategies for a holistic systems approach to successful integration of educational, engagement, operational, and planning outcomes. This report utilizes the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS®) outline and assessment methods developed by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) to address the integration of sustainability across campus and the community. A focus on the Priority Actions not only impacts sustainability across campus and makes us more applicable as an institution of higher education to the current generation, but it also maps ways to improve our overall STARS® score and standing as well as other ranking systems, such as the Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges and Sierra Magazine’s Coolest School rankings. To this end, the 2014 Colorado College State of Sustainability report is fundamentally organized around the STARS® organizational outline.

"Colorado College's Campus at Baca is located on approximately 300 acres near the town of Crestone, Colorado, along the west side of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Its buildings are situated primarily adjacent to the South Crestone Creek drainage. Several different vegetation zones exist within these 300 acres, including a narrowleaf cottonwood/rocky mountain juniper riparian zone, a shrub/grassland zone, and a pinyon/juniper/ponderosa zone. Within each zone there are different fire regimes, elemental balances, and biodiversities. This land management plan is designed to be adaptive in nature, and reflect sensitivity to each zone."--Introduction p. 3

In this paper, I explore the process of meaning-making around alcohol consumption in two contexts: Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and a college campus. Drawing on ethnographic observation of AA meetings, interviews with AA members, and a survey of college students, I will discuss how context and interaction shape the process of alcohol-related identity construction. In Alcoholics Anonymous, members are provided with a clear, established path toward identity creation. On the college campus, however, students must give meaning to their behaviors without the aid of explicit standards or expectations.

In October, 2002, President Celeste charged Margi Duncombe, Tass Kelso, Randy Stiles and Sam Williams (the Mappers) with the following two tasks:1. Revisit the CC mission statement with a goal of arriving at a succinct and compelling formulation that captures our distinguishing characteristics. 2. Engage the campus community in a process that will build on the mission statement with the purpose of articulating a long-term vision for the College – where we aspire to be in five to ten years – and a road-map for how to get there. President Celeste also specified that this effort should be highly participatory and transparent, that the final product should be something we all “own” and should be sufficiently practical that it can guide us in making tough choices, in setting clear priorities, and in evaluating how we are doing along the way. Finally, he requested that this work be done by the end of the ’02-’03 academic year. This report marks the end of the beginning of a new cycle of strategic thinking about the future of Colorado College.
President Tiefenthaler gives an update on the Colorado College Year of Planning. In this update, she encourages the campus community to continue to be engaged in the planning process. To continue gathering input, and assist the planning committees in developing their goals, she poses three questions to the college community: 1. What opportunities or experiences could enhance learning at Colorado College? 2. What makes Colorado College a special place, distinct from anywhere else? 3. For what, specifically, should Colorado College be known, and why?
The Colorado College Sustainability Plan (CCSP) is designed as a web-based “living document” in three hierarchically-nested parts: Strategic Initiatives, Action Projects, and Implementation Plans. Strategic Initiatives are divided into six categories, including: Structure, Energy & Carbon Neutrality, Natural Resources, Buildings & Landscape, Education, Financing. This document includes the background, goals and lists of action items for each strategic initiative.
"The intent of the Colorado College Long Range Development Plan, an update to the 1995 Thompson and Rose campus master plan, is to provide the College with a framework for future planning, design and development decisions that strengthens the College’s unique culture, academic program and strategic vision. The ultimate success of the Long Range Development Plan lies in the flexibility of the Plan document itself and in the College’s dedication to the Plan as a guide for decisions related to the physical form of the campus."--p. i
