About the Chancellor's Faculty Fellowship

The Chancellor’s Faculty Fellowship was announced in July 2020, following Chancellor Marks’ equity listening sessions.

Serving over the 2020-2021 academic year, the Fellow will have two primary responsibilities: to advise Chancellor Marks and the CU Denver leadership team on issues of concern to underrepresented students, faculty, and staff; and to work on projects that support diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts at CU Denver.

For the fall 2020 semester, the fellow will receive a $5000 stipend and $2000 in professional development funds; for the spring 2021 semester, the fellow will receive a $5000 stipend and either funding for a course release or $2000 in professional development funds.
