The goal of the CCU Alumni Association is to foster and cultivate the spirit of a continuing Christian community for alumni of Colorado Christian University to unite that community into a vital force of influence, support, action, continuous learning, fellowship, and giving through effective communication among members and with the University and to perpetuate interest in the welfare of the University and the larger community of fellow alumni and friends. Graduates of Colorado Christian University and its heritage schools have left their footprints on the nation and world. In medicine, business music, missions, ministry, education, and other academic disciplines, graduates are continually writing stories of success and are dynamic catalysts for change in this challenging and demanding society.

Jobs & Internship

Colorado Christian University encourages all students to take advantage of internship opportunities at some point during their time in college. Internships give students the chance to take the knowledge and skills they are gaining in the classroom and apply them in professional situations. Going abroad to complete an internship is a great way to gain professional experience while living in another culture. For students interested in gaining a cultural perspective, another great option is to work alongside a church or missionary organization in another country. With so many positive relationships in the local education community, the School of Education has a high placement rate for graduating students- alumni are successful in administration, in a diverse array of public and private school classrooms and we even have graduates teaching in other countries.
