Office of the President

A Message From The President

Welcome to Western States College of Construction—WSCC. It is a privilege and honor to serve as the first President of WSCC. We are grateful for the tenacity and vision of the leadership of the Rocky Mountain Mechanical Contractors Association, our local labor partners, and the members of our construction industry who worked hard to build the foundation of WSCC.

At WSCC, we create opportunities and inspire students to achieve their life goals.  We are unique. During our students’ academic journeys, they earn a salary while learning, apply what they learn, and graduate with almost no debt. All classes are taught by highly dedicated industry professionals and the curriculum is designed to prepare students for an applied and professional career in our industry.

Today, WSCC serves eight different educational campuses in Colorado and Wyoming with five programs.

These educational programs have served our community for over 125 years. At graduation, our students fully participate in building our economy as active members of our construction industry and our society.

I believe the responsibility of education is to build good citizens and leaders; leaders with compassion, integrity, critical thinking skills, and a desire to serve others. Delivering such an education to students who will be facing a challenging and dynamic marketplace in our industry calls for a different structure; one that requires a dynamic, passionate, and collaborative environment. President John F. Kennedy said it best during his speech at the  American University in 1963,

Professor Woodrow Wilson once said that every man sent out from a university should be a man of his nation as well as a man of his time, and I am confident that the men and women who carry the honor of graduating from this institution will continue to give from their lives, from their talents, a high measure of public service and public support.
