A Letter from the President


Aims Community College is here for you…

We are proud of our track record at Aims and proud to provide a vital service to our students and community. Great opportunities abound for students to take advantage of quality academic programs at Aims. Our highly qualified professors and advisors can guide students through courses that will tune up their job skills or transfer to any other public institution in Colorado. The College also has specialized programs for those individuals who may need some extra academic help to pursue an educational goal.

The economic downturn and its impact on finances and jobs continues to be felt across the country and in northern Colorado. It is a difficult time for so many of us. Aims Community College, too, has been impacted by the situation, with significant cutbacks in state funding and the prospect of local property taxes also diminishing. Nonetheless it is important for you to know, with confidence, that Aims is still here for you during these hard times.

Aims Community College has seen an increase in enrollment, as many people choose to begin or continue their education to retool their skills for the future economy. They know that Aims provides an incredibly high quality education at an incredibly affordable cost. In fact, for residents of our taxing district, Aims is the most affordable community college in the state. Even for those students who are out of our district, our costs are competitive with other community colleges.

In the last three years, the College has built or renovated several buildings to ensure that students learn in the best environment and have access to the high tech tools they need to gain a technological advantage in their career. The most recent addition to the Aims facilities is the Aims Automotive and Technical Center, located south of Windsor at Highway 34 and County Road 17. This building is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment for students in auto service, collision, paint and allied degrees and certificates.

Aims continues to offer opportunity in difficult times and the chance to make the future brighter. Aims is here for you.
