Colorado Mountain College faculty, administrators and students recently participated in a daylong summit with outdoor industry leaders at Morgridge Commons in Glenwood Springs.

In addition to the panelists listed in the accompanying photo caption, renowned photographer John Fielder also spoke at the summit.

The summit was the culmination of meetings held throughout CMC’s district, at which college representatives asked outdoor industry leaders about ways CMC can better train and educate students for careers in the field.

Colorado Mountain College was recently named Top Adventure College by Elevation Outdoors Magazine for its numerous educational opportunities in outdoor recreation and natural resource management, and its proximity to many year-round adventure-based locations.
