Academic Innovation Advisory Council

About the Advisory Council

As CU Denver works toward accomplishing the goals put forth in the Strategic Plan, the Digital Strategy Task Force, and the Microcredential and Badging Working Groups, the need for an advisory council to coordinate efforts has become more apparent. Many of the initiatives that will support academic innovation across the campus involve several existing committees (e.g. LETTS, EPPC, UCC, Grad Council), groups (e.g. Faculty Assembly, UCDALI, Staff Council, SGA, CPE), and units/offices (e.g. Registrar, Bursar, OIRE, UComm, Budget, General Counsel, Advising, OIT, the Auraria Library) that will need to continue to collaborate and coordinate to achieve CU Denver’s short-term goals and longer-term strategy to become a University for Life.
