Faculty and staff

Are you ready to summit the LYNX UP Challenge?

Your CU Denver faculty and staff colleagues were instrumental in planning and launching LYNX UP. Just like you, they love our students and want them to succeed. You can ensure they do just that with the help of more scholarship support when you participate in the LYNX UP Challenge, a friendly competition just for CU Denver faculty and staff. This year, the entire campus comes together into four teams named after four of the 14ers in Colorado.


Which team will reach the top?

Join your colleagues on one of four cross-campus teams in the LYNX UP Challenge by recruiting the highest proportion of faculty and staff supporting scholarships for CU Denver students.


Who is eligible?

How do I participate?
