Pueblo Higher Education reflects the best of our community

Senator Nick Hinrichsen

This week I had the opportunity to hear from Pueblo Community College and CSU Pueblo leaders about the challenges they face and the opportunities they are excited about. What I heard is a story familiar to everyone in Pueblo: people and organizations who have faced seemingly impossible obstacles, achieved extraordinary results, overcome the odds, and moved forward with hope.

After three challenging years since the outbreak and its aftermath, we have been able to work together to celebrate their achievements and continue their growth. This fall, CSU Pueblo welcomed its largest freshman class in four years, and PCC saw its total enrollment top 6,500 for the first time. I am proud of these accomplishments for both institutions, and excited about what those accomplishments mean for our broader community.
