The CFDA provides group mentoring for faculty members during their first three years at CU Denver.
Whether you're a tenured faculty member, or just starting out your career with CU Denver, we may have a grant for you!
As you prepare for the processes of promotion, tenure, or application for a major University award, we encourage you to view our collection of outstanding dossiers and dossier statements by requesting access to the Dossier Library.
The Center for Faculty Development and Advancement operates under the Office of Faculty Affairs, which provides academic leadership resources, oversees faculty processes, and organizes faculty awards/recognition events.
By the time you apply for promotion to full professor, you’ve made your fair share of dossiers. That process will be deeply familiar to you. However, at this stage of your career, the story you tell about the impact of your work may be very different from the stories you’ve told before. This session will discuss ways to make your best case for promoting you to full professor rank. This session is designed with tenured associate professors on the Denver Campus in mind. However, all are welcome to participate in this workshop. The session will include plenty of time for discussion. Session goals:
• Learn best practices for telling your story through your dossier statements.
• Discuss the selection of evidence for each section of your dossier.
• Explore best practices for faculty who have devoted significant amounts of time to administration or major projects.
• Discuss strategies for selecting your external reviewers.
Facilitator: Karen Sobel. Panel: Andres Lema-Hincapie, Robert Metcalf, Callie Rennison.
