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.
We all know how hard it can be to set time aside for academic writing. If we are at home children, chores and other daily life responsibilities usually pull us away – even if we have set purposefully time aside. At work, it is nearly impossible not to get interrupted by colleagues, emails, and responsibilities. These writing retreats are conceptualized to allow you, together with colleagues, a few hours of uninterrupted time (they will be neither in your office nor in your home):
Each writing retreat will be 4-hours long, in-person on the Anschutz Campus. If you are really dedicated to make progress, you can sign up for both sessions offered on a given day. In advance of the workshop, you will be provided with some goal setting and planning material so you can get started with your writing project as soon as you arrive.
If academic writing is not your favorite thing to do and you have a hard time getting it done on your own, then a writing retreat might be the right thing for you. Writing together as a group can help with motivation and the Writing Faculty Fellow, Dr. Sonja Ziniel, will be on hand during the writing retreat for support so you can achieve the goals you set yourself for the retreat.
