2020 Faculty of Color Recognition & Celebration


The Office of Faculty Affairs is proud to present the University Colorado Boulder’s faculty of color who have completed significant career milestones this year. It is not always easy to be on the tenure track at a top research institution, so it is all the more important to mark these moments and highlight how much we value our faculty.
