2020 Ram Tour will be virtual!
About the Ram Faculty Engagement Tour
The CSU Ram Faculty Engagement Tour is a two-day traveling seminar designed for recently hired and newly tenured faculty, new administrators, and/or new student leaders. The tour takes you through a Colorado region to meet CSU community partners, talk with current CSU students and alumni, and learn from regional leaders. The Tour is a chance to meet other faculty from across CSU who may be future partners for teaching, research, or engagement activities.
- Deepen participants’ understanding of CSU’s mission as a land-grant institution by interacting with CSU’s activities and networks in a specific Colorado region.
- Enhance networks within and across faculty cohorts at CSU to facilitate interdisciplinary communication and collaboration for teaching, research, and engagement.
- Improve awareness of engagement/external relations programs at CSU.
