Who We Are
We are the largest community college in Colorado, enrolling close to 28,000 credit students annually. We were one of 30 colleges in the initial American Association of Community Colleges Pathways Project, recently selected as a “Most Promising Place to Work” in Diverse Magazine, and profiled as one of six top community colleges for transfer student success in a recent Aspen Institute publication. We have developed a strong strategic plan focused on improving student graduation and transfer rates and have made significant investments in advising and other student support programs.
At FRCC, we transform lives through excellence in teaching and learning. Pillars of our approach include: Inclusive learning environments; Active student engagement; Robust instructional content; Meaningful assessment; and Continuous improvement.
We have a strong commitment to inclusion, equity, and diversity. We are actively seeking to hire a workforce that reflects our student community and supports our Philosophy of Inclusion.
We are guided by the philosophy “One College, Many Communities.” Campuses share many common values, goals, and practices, but are also given the opportunity and flexibility to develop unique cultures and programs that serve individual communities. In addition, we have a clear vision outlined in its strategic plan. For more information, visit the following: www.frontrange.edu and VISION 2020.

We are learner-centered and responsive to diverse student goals, including service to community. We will facilitate learning where, when, and how it best suits the needs of the diverse learning public we serve. Our curriculum will prepare vocational, academic, and business-oriented students to succeed in a highly competitive, global economy by focusing on quality, innovation, technology, self-initiative, and problem solving. Collaboration, teamwork, cheerfulness, diversity and a priority on student success and satisfaction will characterize our work and our management. We recognize that our faculty, together with our staff, is our greatest asset and that our commitment to their continuous professional development is essential. We are driven to excel and embrace the importance of listening to our constituencies. Business and civic leaders will experience our resolve to be recognized as a model for a "virtual campus" spanning not only North Jefferson, Adams, Boulder, and Larimer counties, but wherever technology will allow us to educate effectively.
