Best of 2014: Higher Ed for Non-traditional Students

It's a no-brainer in this category, given that nontraditional students make up the majority of the student population at Pikes Peak Community College. Roughly 25 percent of that population is military, says Allison Cortez, executive director of marketing and communications, and in the past year, PPCC has celebrated the opening of its new multimillion-dollar Military and Veterans Center at the Centennial Campus. It's also rearranged its remedial education programs for nontraditional students. One more boon for students traditional and non-traditional alike: The school has implemented a new curriculum with classes and tutoring revolving around entrepreneurship, where Cortez says they'll "learn about professional and life entrepreneurial skills to be better equipped in the community." — Anna Palmer
