Microcredential Working Group

About the Working Group 

The Microcredential Working Group was created to support and improve CU Denver’s infrastructure for microcredentials. Leveraging the expertise across our colleges, schools, and administrative units, and building on our 2030 strategic plan that positions CU Denver to be a University for Life for all learners, we are working to define and simplify the infrastructure for creating microcredentials that meet the needs of Coloradans.   

This working group was launched in March 2023 to review the current state of microcredentials; identify opportunities for microcredential programs; identify and create processes to ensure the continued quality of our educational activities; and provide recommendations for next steps so that all members of our campus can contribute to developing and maintaining this microcredential infrastructure. The working group’s final report was released to the CU Denver community in September 2023.
