A very warm welcome to all new CU Boulder faculty as you join a community where our groundbreaking faculty are dedicated to teaching, research, creative work, and leadership in the service of the public good. Our faculty teach and learn with over 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students on our beautiful campus. I am the faculty member who leads the Office of Faculty Affairs, the office on campus that strives to support faculty through their careers, from hiring to retiring.
Becoming a faculty member at CU Boulder doesn't just mean you are going to teach at the foothills of the Flatirons — it also means you are joining a community of scholars, artists, and scientists who are educating the next generation of citizens and leaders and pursuing leading-edge discovery and inquiry to inform and to improve our democratic society.
We are delighted you have chosen to join our diverse and vibrant faculty community here at CU Boulder, and we look forward to working and growing together. Faculty Affairs is here to help faculty envision, develop, and sustain successful careers here, and to provide faculty with opportunities to engage with the campus community and to create a sense of belonging to and ownership of the university.
Wishing you a wonderful semester ahead.
Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor for Faculty Affairs
Professor of Education
