Academic Transformation Working Groups

CU Denver Provost greeting faculty

CU Denver is engaging in a collaborative project to reimagine academic operations that are more equitable and focused on student success. The Academic Transformation project will consist of four working groups charged with providing recommendations via reports to Provost Constancio Nakuma by April 15, 2024.

These goals align with the 2030 Strategic Plan in creating a “best place to work” and “making education work for all.” Implementation would begin as early as the Fall 2025 semester. To ensure broad participation and inclusivity in this work, each working group is collecting requests for volunteer participants as well creating lists of community members who wish to receive updates on the progress of each working group. To express your interest in joining a working group or to request updates on a group's progress, click “Connect with this Working Group” below to share your information with the working group facilitators. You can express interest in joining or getting updates for multiple working groups. Working group members will be solidified by early October, 2023.
