Chip pointingWhether you are new to the CU Boulder campus or you’ve been here for decades, there is always something new to discover. Here are five ways to engage, get involved, and explore the CU Boulder campus. 

  1. Take a Campus Tour
    • If you were hired in March 2020 or later you can participate in the New Employee Welcome Experience campus tours that started in-person again this August. The 2.25 mile walking tour of the main campus aims to connect newly hired employees with each other while learning about the history and traditions of CU Boulder. Visit the New Employee Welcome Page to learn more and register. 
  2. Homecoming Wherever You Roam 
    • This fall, Forever Buffs spirit is going to be everywhere in celebration of Homecoming 2021. The CU-themed festivities begin virtually in October and culminate in an in-person weekend on the Boulder campus on November 6, 2021. View the full list of homecoming events
  3. Self-Care with Fall FSAP Workshops
  4. Begin your allyship journey
    • Are you interested in becoming an ally? You can start by learning the three basic steps to defining your allyship journey. As our society continues to be faced with a number of social crises, many people desire to take the necessary steps to be an ally for different groups, such as the AAPI community, the BIPOC community, or the LGBTQIA+ community. You can learn how to define and leverage your allyship, and walk away with a template to help guide your learning and steps for action.  This workshop is open to all faculty, staff and students interested in becoming an ally. There is no cost for this course. Register for Allyship: Advancing Diversity and Inclusion.
