This website provides information about the world-wide coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak for all those who plan to attend an event administered by Continuing and Professional Education Services at Colorado School of Mines.
The impacts of the ongoing world-wide coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak are continuing and are rapidly changing. Response to the outbreak by the government of Colorado and the administration of the Colorado School of Mines (Mines) has been updated and will likely undergo further changes as the situation warrants. At present, all events at Mines have been canceled until at least June 19, 2020.
Since many events administered by Continuing and Professional Education Services (CPES) at Mines take place on the school's campus in Golden, Colorado, the source of the best and most current information regarding the general impact of the coronavirus on CPES-administered events is the Mines website. Please use the link below to access the Mines coronavirus information resources.
The status of individual CPES-administered events is shown below. This information will be updated as the situation at Mines changes. Information regarding transferring registrations to other sessions of events and regarding registration cancellation policies is also available on this webpage.
Please direct any questions you may have to Learn@mines.edu. Additional contact information can be found on our Contact Us webpage. Please be aware that the CPES office staff, like most of Mines personnel, are working remotely; therefore, contact by email will be the most expedient method.
