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:
New Faculty Orientation and Thriving at CU Series provides a day-long orientation for new tenure-track professors, instructors, clinical, and in-residence faculty, along with a monthly workshop series for faculty in their first three years at CU Boulder.
ACUMent Across CU Mentoring Center offers three types of mentoring programs for faculty at all career stages: pre-tenured faculty, non-tenure-track instructional faculty, or tenured associate professors. Programs include peer mentoring circles, mentor matches, and peer coaching.
National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) provides extensive professional development, training, and mentorship opportunities, through institutional membership. All CU faculty have free sub-account memberships.
Professional and Career Development Trainings offers workshops on issues such as how to hold difficult conversations, manage time, and build trust.
Networking and Community Building cultivates professional networks across the Boulder campus and sponsors events for different communities.
Grant Opportunities organizes "Growth Grants" for projects that will assist in advancing the careers of Associate Professors and "Faculty Success Grants" to fund participation in the NCFDD program.
Faculty Recognition and Appreciation celebrates the milestones and accomplishments of our faculty throughout their careers.
Retired Faculty Association offers opportunities for retired faculty to continue participating in and contributing to campus life.
