Room and board may go up at CMC

Staff Report

The Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees will consider whether to hike room and board rates at its three residential campuses during its monthly meeting at the Rifle Campus Friday. The meeting starts at 11 a.m.

The room rate increases would be 4 percent, to $1,550 per semester, for a double room at all three campuses, and 5.6 percent, to $2,325, for a single room at all three campuses.

Board rate increases at the Spring Valley Campus outside Glenwood Springs range from a 2.5 percent increase, to $1,558 per semester for the 23-meal weekly plan, to 7.9 percent for the 14-meal weekly plan.

“The costs of the residence halls and food service continue to increase,” said CMC vice-president David Borofsky in a memo to the trustees. “Most other institutions anticipate a 2 to 5 percent increase.”

Colorado Mountain College also operates residential campuses outside Leadville, and inside Steamboat Springs.

In other business at Friday’s meeting, the board will consider a schedule board meetings over the coming year.

The board will hear public comment at 11:30 a.m.

The next CMC board meeting takes place Friday, May 9. The time and location has not been set, but strategic planning is the main agenda item.
