Post-Secondary option

June 19, 2012


This past week I had the wonderful opportunity to visit The Institute of Business and Medical Careers (IBMC) Fort Collins Campus. I was warmly greeted by the front office staff prior to my opportunity to speak with Eric Thompson Campus Director and Cy Foppe Admissions Training and Development Specialist.

The purpose of my visit was to understand more about IBMC to determine if it could be a viable pathway for the migrant, immigrant, and refugee students we serve in Northern Colorado. Personally and professionally, I was very impressed with the campus and the personal approach that the staff takes when working with the diverse population they serve. I look forward to working with IBMC in the future as I work with students who are looking for post-secondary options, as I believe the small class sizes, hands-on approach to learning, and the climate and culture of the campus will be a great fit for newcomer students who may be over aged and under credited when they arrive.

IBMC delivers a wide-range of professional life-changing opportunities to promote personal, social and career development. We welcome a diversity of individuals and encourage life-long learning for success.

The Institute of Business and Medical Careers (IBMC) offers Certificate, Diploma and Associate of Occupational Studies Degree Programs in Medical, Business, Legal and Massage fields.

From The IMBC Website – Fort Collins is home to IBMC’s main campus. Once located on Oakridge Drive, IBMC found it necessary to move locations as a result of rapid growth and to better accommodate the student body. Now located at 3842 S. Mason Street, this campus contains medical laboratories, computer labs, lecture classrooms, massage classrooms, spa-like massage clinic rooms and a law library research center to help foster development and assist students down an accelerated career training path.

For convenience, a resource center/library is also available as a study area for students. This center contains both reference and online research materials for programs offered by IBMC. Workstations for students are provided with high speed internet access.

To further serve the students of IBMC, the Student Lounge provides vending services, as well as an area for informal gatherings and study time.

The campus also houses offices for administration, staff, financial services, career placement and student services.

To find out more about this campus, call (970) 223-2669. For more information about the city of Fort Collins, please visit

If you know of other post-secondary options for migrant, immigrant, and refugee students please share them so I can continue to explore and share alternative pathways to post-secondary options.
