Castle Rock campus takes a new approach to higher education
A new campus at The Meadows in Castle Rock will provide a full continuum of workforce training and higher education at a single site that may be easily accessed by students in the region south of Denver and north of Colorado Springs.
Groundbreaking for the Castle Rock Collaboration Campus was in Spring 2018; the first phase of construction is set for completion in Fall 2019.
Project partners are Arapahoe Community College, the town of Castle Rock, the Castle Rock Economic Development Council, Colorado State University, and the Douglas County School District – organizations committed to making job training and higher education accessible and relevant to students, employers, and the economy broadly.
“People often use the word ‘collaboration’ loosely, but this campus truly is the coming together of educational entities from all levels, the community, and local employers,” Diana Doyle, president of Arapahoe Community College, said.
Kathay Rennels, associate vice president for CSU Engagement, called the project “an amazing step into the future.”
