The COVID-19 pandemic exposed harsh realities for Colorado colleges and their students.

Fewer students enrolled last year, especially those from low-income areas and communities of color. More students struggled to get federal financial aid. And in the face of enrollment declines, colleges struggled with financial challenges, especially those serving a diverse student population.

During the 2021-22 school year, Chalkbeat will continue to chronicle the story of higher education in Colorado — but we need your help.

We want to hear about the struggles you’ve seen or experienced. What pandemic-related issues impacting colleges and students need to be brought to light? What stories are we missing?
