Becoming a faculty member at CU Boulder doesn’t just mean you are going to teach at the foothills of the Flatirons --it means you are joining a community of scholars, scientists, and artists who are educating the next generation of citizens and leaders, and fostering the spirit of discovery and innovation in pursuit of furthering the public good. We are here to help faculty envision, develop and sustain successful careers at CU Boulder, and to provide faculty with opportunities to engage with the campus community and create a sense of belonging to and ownership of the institution.
As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting our CU Boulder faculty, we offer a variety of programs and training to promote the professional growth, development, and advancement of faculty members, as well as opportunities to build an interdisciplinary faculty community through mentoring and networking events.
