Bridge Network

The Bridge Network is open to all CU Denver IRC faculty interested in actively engaging with UCDALI events and communications and connecting with IRC faculty in their home schools and colleges. In addition to general members, Bridge Network Liaisons from each school and college help maintain communication between the UCDALI Executive Committee and IRC faculty across campus. Bridge Network Liaisons take an active role in sharing information on UCDALI activities and discussions, including opportunities and resources for professional development, and serve as point of contact for IRC faculty in their home units.

If you are interested in learning more about the Bridge Network or becoming a Bridge Network Liaison for your school/college, please contact Bridge Network Coordinator Paula Schmidtlein at
