Colorado Northwestern Community College unveils new website
CRAIG — Enrollment is up, as is a new website, as students start a new academic year at Colorado Northwestern Community College on Monday.
While enrollment numbers for the fall semester are still preliminary, CNCC Interim Vice President of Craig campus Ron Slinger told the Moffat County Affiliated Junior College District Board of Control that their initiative to offer free tuition for Moffat County residents is making a difference.
“Headcount is up about 20 percent, and FTEs (full-time equivalencies) are up 12 percent. We are tracking every student and will have those numbers at the next board meeting,” Slinger said.
The news was given to the board members during their regular monthly meeting, where they also learned a new website for college was launched just before the start classes.
The new website was built by CNCC Marketing Director Brian MacKenzie. He estimated the college saved more than $35,000 by designing in-house. CNCC President Ron Granger complimented MacKenzie on his efforts and the site.
CNCC is part of the Colorado Community College System, which also recently unveiled a new mobile-friendly website.
The website report came near the end of a meeting that included executive sessions to consult with attorneys on the acquisition, lease, transfer, or sale of any real, personal, or other property interest and consider proposals for audit services.
Board members unanimously voted to engage Colorado CPA to provide an annual audit. The board also unanimously approved minutes of its regular meeting and the treasurer’s report from July 16.
