Faculty Welcome Day!

Join us in welcoming our new faculty at CU Denver!

Reserve Your Spot Here!


The Center for Faculty Development & Advancement (CFDA) orients all new CU Denver faculty through its New Faculty Orientation programming. We welcome new faculty and help them to build their professional practice through a year-long cycle of programming and mentoring.

Since the majority of faculty members are hired on an "August start" timeline, our Welcome Day takes place in mid-August each year. We encourage faculty members who are hired for Spring, Summer, or mid-semester starts to contact us at cfda@ucdenver.edu. We're glad to welcome you to a Mentoring Circle, to provide access to Online New Faculty Orientation, and to provide any individual support that you need.

We're glad that you're here!

Faculty members who are hired for Spring, Summer, or mid-semester starts are invited to participate in the CFDA's Online New Faculty Orientation.  This is offered through CU Denver's Canvas learning management system.  Please email us to request an enrollment link.

Faculty Welcome Day


Each August, we welcome all new faculty members to campus. Faculty Welcome Day focuses on introducing new faculty members to CU Denver's leadership & culture. It provides new faculty members with opportunities to connect and ask questions.
