Spring 2017 Office of Equity Trainings Now Scheduling

Now is a great time to get an Office of Equity (formerly Title IX) training scheduled for your department, student staff, and/or classes. Those who attended training last semester to learn about the recently updated policies, pressing issues on our campus, and what the obligation to report as a “Responsible Employee” looks like in practice are encourage you to bring this information back to your areas (as it is an important piece of supporting an inclusive campus climate). Anyone interested in setting up new trainings can contact Sarah J. Berg, the Deputy Title IX Coordinator of Prevention, Training & Outreach, to learn more about the types of trainings offered and get something scheduled: or 303-315-0380.

PLEASE ALERT STUDENTS: 2017-18 UROP Full and Mini Grants Deadline March 3, 2017

The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is a competitive grants program designed to financially support faculty-mentored research, creative, and other scholarly activities undertaken by undergraduates at CU Denver and CU AMC.  As such, UROP provides an opportunity for students to extend learning beyond the traditional classroom, laboratory, and studio.  New this year, UROP Mini-Grants provide an alternative to the UROP Full Grants that are administered each spring by the Office of Undergraduate Experiences. This spring, UROP expects to award approximately 20 mini grant awards of up to $500, and 25 full grant awards up to $3,600 for the 2017-2018 academic year (depending upon applications received).   For in-depth application materials (including requirements), please visit the UROP main page at:  Read More »

Allen Top Fulbright Scholar

Casey Allen, Geography and Environmental Sciences Associate Professor, had a Top 10 Fulbright Scholar Blog Post of 2016. Speaking about his experience in Jordan, he said: “In the end, when I consider all that we did, saw, and accomplished in a short six-months, the thing that speaks to my heart and soul – what really is the power of the Fulbright Program – are the people. That’s what Fulbright is all about, that’s where the true power of the program rests: its ability to promote and foster mutual understanding and appreciation. Be sure to take advantage of it.”

Beekman Headed to Yale Working Group

Chris Beekman will be part of a small working group next month with the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University discussing collectors, museums, dealers, and antiquities trafficking. He will also be spending time at Dumbarton Oaks, where he did his sabbatical, working on the organization of a 2018 or 2019 symposium to be held there.

Tracer Now American Journal of Human Biology Associate Editor

Returning from sabbatical, David Tracer recently became the Associate Editor of the top-tier American Journal of Human Biology. He says he has already learned just how many people must be contacted before he has enough reviewers for an article submission.
