Academic Departments
Cultivating curiosity

Colorado College would not be the same without the innovative Block Plan and our rigorous exploration of knowledge. This academic year marks 50 years of our unique one-class-at-a-time approach and to celebrate, we launched three interconnected media projects aimed to capture the vitality of the Block Plan's inventors. Learn more about our commemorative efforts here.

The Block Plan encourages a rigorous exploration of knowledge. Our faculty and academic departments are at the center of that exploration.  



Your gift to an academic department can fund new equipment, research and initiatives that positively impact the lives of our students. By investing in these departments, you are affirming our mission of providing the finest liberal arts education in the country.
