Beginning with the college’s inception in 1874, the diversity timeline provides a historic record of major milestones related to diversity at CC.
Find out the name of CC’s first female graduate, the fifth person to graduate from the college during a time when the idea of a college education for women was still a radical concept. Learn about Booker T. Washington’s visit to campus, speaking to a standing-room only crowd. Use the site to walk through time at CC, better understanding the campus climate and key benchmarks, from the establishment of the Bisexual, Gay, and Lesbian Alliance, to the founding and purpose of the Glass House, to last year’s Courageous Conversations about diversity on campus. The diversity timeline spans decades, documenting CC’s history and covering all aspects of CC’s diverse community.
The timeline also supports CC’s strategic initiative to grow a more diverse and inclusive campus, and aligns with the establishment of the college’s diversity commitment.
Thanks to Jessy Randall, Amy Brooks, both work in Special Collections at Tutt Library, and Zita Toth ’16 along with others who contributed time, effort, and research to the initial launch of this resource.

All the rain we've been getting in Colorado Springs is taking a toll at Tutt Library. The blue you see above - tarps and bins - in the atrium today are there to collect drips from the roof. Fortunately the facilities crew are on it (along with multiple other locations on campus). We're just not accustomed to all this rain.
According to an article in today's Gazette, Colorado Springs has already exceeded its annual average for precipitation. As of yesterday, the airport recorded 17.31 inches of water which is more than an inch above the city's annual average (roughly 16 inches of precipitation).
Jeff Watters came across this young Cooper's Hawk while mowing and brought in to Jen Sides. It 's been claimed by a raptor rescue group. Check our collection for more on birds and identification (https://tiger.coloradocollege.edu/search~S5/…).
As the year draws to a close, we ask all students to please remember to check your library account and return all material before you leave for the summer. (And please carry your materials across campus in a bag or backpack, so you don't get caught out in one of these sudden book-melting downpours we've been having!!) If you will be staying in the Springs over the summer, and returning next fall, just make sure to stay on top of your items' due dates.
Graduates: If you are graduating and will be staying in Colorado Springs, you can apply for an alumni card. If you have been using a carrel, please clear it ASAP or talk to circulation staff about extending your carrel privileges over the summer. Congratulations, and we will miss you! We wish you the very best of luck in all your future endeavors.
Questions about this post? Please call the circulation desk at (719)389-6184, or email email@example.com .
Earlier this block, we at Tutt had the pleasure of celebrating our graduates and the rest of our student workers with an end-of-year celebration, and we wanted to share a couple of pictures from that day with you all. As always, we wish the very best for all of CC's about-to-graduate seniors, and especially those who worked with us in the library. From Tutt Library: Gabi, Susannah, Lindsay, Ashley, Harry, and Mindy; from the Music Library: Dominique and Chanel; and from the Press: Atticus. We appreciate all the love and hard work you've put into your jobs, and we will miss you.
Tutt Library's eighth annual haiku contest has come to a close. Our three wonderful winners were selected via blind judging by library staff and student employees.
Sarah Milteer, staff in the Colket Student Learning Center, submitted the third-place winner:
Cavernous book aisles Draw me in, take me, lose me Ten million places
Second prize goes to librarian Mimi Wheatwind:
Two sharing one book turning pages, taking notes, Winter turns to Spring
And first prize goes to librarian Lisa Lister:
Books became thought trees, A forest in which gladly I wandered half lost.
Copies of our annual haiku zine are available for free at Tutt Library. The zine features the prize winners plus several other evocative and amusing entries from this year's contest (including a special Library Yeti section!).
