What is the UE Symposium?
The Undergraduate Experiences Symposium brings together faculty, staff, and students from across CU Denver to work collectively in a dynamic environment on curriculum, pedagogy, co-curriculum, and services to raise undergraduate learning, engagement, and success. The symposium brings in prominent speakers to inform us of national best practices in higher education reform and challenges us to adapt or surpass them in application to our own unique culture and students. Provost Rod Nairn attends, as often do the deans of each school/college. Working tables and breakout sessions generate proposals that lead to real actions that serve all undergraduates.
