Learn about the CU Denver Faculty Assembly​​


The Faculty Assembly (FA) is the official voice of the CU Denver Faculty in shared governance on our campus, at our University and at the CU-system level. The Faculty Assembly and its committees are elected/appointed by their schools and colleges on campus to represent the interests of the faculty and to work with administration of the campus.

CU Denver faculty also have other opportunities to serve on committees that impact shared topics that affect the Auraria Campus or associations that reach out to non-tenure track faculty that are in each of the schools and colleges on the CU Denver campus. These are the Faculty Campus Committees.
