This temporary Lecturer pool is anticipated to remain continuously active through May 1, 2018-at that point, all applications will be cleared from the pool. You are welcome to reapply to the new posting after that date.

Lecturers selected from this pool will become vital members of the School's innovative education programs. For information on the specific programs and courses offered through CPE, please visit http://ucdenver.edu/education/cpe.
