About Us

The Division for Teaching Innovation and Program Strategy (TIPS) provides faculty support toward more inclusive and effective teaching practices. The TIPS Division also stewards the expansion of academic offerings and microcredentials to respond to changing workforce needs and learner preferences while prioritizing accessibility, flexibility, and lifelong learning. TIPS collaboratively develops a next-generation campus experience with stakeholders from across campus, building a more engaged virtual community to enhance student success and catalyze academic innovation across the university.

Leadership & Administration

The TIPS Division is led by Dr. Katie Linder, Associate Vice Chancellor for Digital Strategy and Learning. By working in close partnership with the chancellor, provost, deans, faculty, and staff, she helps the campus to develop and implement a holistic and inclusive teaching and learning strategy that re-imagines and transforms the CU Denver student experience through a commitment to innovation that is student-centered and results-oriented. The TIPS Division is also supported by an incredible administrative team.
