It’s a high-tech Cinderella story that showcases CC students’ ability to think big and find solutions to life’s problems utilizing their intelligence, raw grit, courage, and determination. One in which this small, liberal arts school took on some of the biggest names in the Ivy League and won!

FACULTY & STAFF
Heidi Lewis, Colorado College Associate Professor for Feminist & Gender Studies, has been elected as president of the National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA). The honor comes nearly 30 years after CC started its Women’s Studies program.
The two-year run (2023-2025) at the helm of the organization is a first for the David and Lucile Packard professor as well as for representation from CC.
Lewis says she is committed to “catalyzing change through understanding the past and present as much as focusing on visualizing the future” of the association, which has roughly 3,350 members.
Students in the Block 2 class Musical Tapestries of the American Southwest were treated to a trip to New Mexico where leading faculty and professor, Liliana Carrizo, grew up.

It was impressed upon them that, in today’s ethnographic and anthropological academic environment, it’s more important than ever to ensure the exchange of cultural knowledge is attuned to issues of power and privilege and based in reciprocity and trust. This testament is the overarching focus for Carrizo’s sabbatical project next semester, which is to complete her book. READ THE FULL STORY »
