Are you looking for help in writing proposals? The Office of Research Development and Education (ORDE) offers multiple faculty seminar series targeted to the University of Colorado Denver research community. These series are designed to give our faculty researchers an edge when seeking external funding in today's highly competitive market.

Naomi Nishi, the ORDE Assistant Director for Educational Outreach, develops our Faculty Seminar Series. Our Seminar development process is continuously informed by on-line surveys and interviews with faculty on both the Denver and Anschutz Medical Campuses pertaining to faculty needs surrounding the proposal development process. Please let us know if you have a topic of interest for inclusion in the Series. We look forward to hearing from you.
