Center for Faculty Development & Advancement

We support all faculty in their professional lives at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus.

We strive to support faculty to create an interdisciplinary community of faculty focused on scholarship and professional growth. We enhance faculty success in earning promotion and tenure, progressing in rank, growth as leaders in their department, and faculty's experience on our campus. We offer resources, programs, and services to best support faculty in their career, and in work/life balance associated with life as a scholar.

Upcoming Programs

Associate to Full Professor Community of Practice Meeting 1

| 12:30 PM - 01:45 PM

If you are an associate professor and you might wish to apply for promotion to full within the next 5 years, this community of practice is for you! It will provide practical tips on understanding your primary unit criteria, crafting your statements, and positioning your dossier for success. More crucially, it will provide a community of other teacher-scholars with whom to share ideas, celebrate successes, and work through challenges.

For more information, please contact facilitator Dr. Sarah Hagelin (associate professor, English) or the CFDA.
