Faculty Fellow Program

We offer fellowships to faculty who are motivated to move the teaching and learning mission of the university forward. Faculty Fellows come from all schools/colleges and all faculty roles (Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Sr. Instructors, or Instructors, and Tenure Track or IRC faculty are all welcome!) Our fellows promote and share evidence-based best practices in teaching and learning with their colleagues by organizing and playing a strong leadership role in our programs.

Faculty Fellows play a leadership role in CETL programming and serve as liaisons between the departments and faculty. Over the two-year fellowship appointment, they provide the experience, creativity, and energy that helps support the ongoing renewal of teaching at CU Denver. Fellows participate in regular Faculty Fellow gatherings to discuss and support our programs, services, and resources.
