President’s Diversity Award – CU System

This annual award recognizes the contributions of faculty, staff, students and academic or administrative units whose service contributes to the development of a more culturally diverse and inclusive university community. Awards of $1,000 in each of four categories (faculty, staff, student and unit) will be given for projects or activities that best reflect the implementation of system and/or campus diversity goals. The call for nominations will occur in spring 2014. 

Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Beginning in 2014, the University of Colorado Boulder joins in a collaborative partnership with the University of California and the University of Michigan to offer postdoctoral fellowship opportunities at CU-Boulder. In this program, the University of Colorado Boulder offers postdoctoral research fellowships in all academic fields, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development and academic networking opportunities.

The University of Colorado Boulder views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the university by offering the possibility of either a postdoc alone or a combined postdoc and tenure-track faculty appointment.

The University seeks applicants whose creative work/research, teaching and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their academic careers the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
