Fall 2020 Conference

After careful consideration and consultation with faculty and other institutional representatives, the Academic Affairs team has decided to cancel the Fall 2020 Faculty-to-Faculty conference that was originally scheduled for Friday, October 23. CDHE staff are developing a schedule to facilitate the continued work of faculty groups that began revising their Statewide Transfer Articulation Agreements/Degrees with Designation during the 2019-2020 academic year. Department staff will reach out to those faculty groups in the coming weeks to schedule virtual meetings, which will be tentatively scheduled for Friday mornings, starting in mid-October. Once this schedule is finalized, it will be posted here.
