Diversity in higher ed

In an op-ed for The Durango Herald, President Tom Stritikus made the case for race-conscious admissions at institutions of higher education. The Supreme Court of the United States recently struck down the use of these policies, diverging from decades of precedent that helped diversify campus classrooms across the nation.

Curse words in class

Marnie Thompson, assistant professor of Anthropology, uses explicit insults to get students thinking about gender and power in everyday language.

Endangered Species Act

Fifty years in the making, the Endangered Species Act of 1973 is one of the most important and effective U.S. laws. Andrew Gulliford, professor of History, celebrates the protection of peregrines and condors—and hopes for the inclusion of other threatened species before it's too late.

River of Sorrows panel

On May 25, the Animas City Theatre in Durango hosted the Protect the Dolores Film Tour, presenting the film “The River of Sorrows." The film screening was followed by a Q&A session with a panel of experts on the subject, including Brett Davis, director of Outdoor Pursuits.


Weighing in on a feature story for The Colorado Sun, Jason Pettit (Psychology, '23) discussed his experience with homelessness and FLC's rapid re-housing program. The program helped 108 students in its inaugural year with emergency hotel stays, financial assistance for move-in-related costs, and support with rent and utilities.


More than 400 FLC students graduated on May 6 at a ceremony addressed by Thomas J. Vilsack, the 32nd United States Secretary of Agriculture.
