Historical Analysis: Colorado College and Colorado Springs

Project Summary

Colorado College and Colorado Springs were founded as a unit. William Palmer conceived of the town and dreamed of a school that would dictate the culture of the area. However, in 2019 it seems that the two communities exist in different spheres. How and when did this happen? While this question is too big for one person to answer in one block this project attempts to examine the ways in which the college has presented itself in dealings with the city as a means to understand when this relationship may have changed. It looks at the ways in which the school has advertised itself to the local government, businesses, and people in order to develop a relationship with the town. Additionally, this project relates these actions to modern methodologies for creating a harmonious relationship between a college and the town in which it exists.
