Apply for the CUPEU Professional Development fund

Been thinking about that online course you've been wanting to take or that magazine that would provide insight to your CU job if you had a subscription? The CUPEU Professional Development fund can help, if you're eligible!

Starting today, CUPEU is accepting applications for the CUPEU Professional Development fund. The deadline to submit is September 1, 2020 at 5 p.m. (this is firm).

In light of COVID-19, note that:
  • the Professional Development Committee will adhere to the university's position on work-related travel for staff.
  • the fund does not cover equipment-related expenses, per article 10.12.b. If you are in need of office equipment to optimize your work-from-home situation, this is a matter to discuss your supervisor.

On newsletters

Since the CU Office 365 implementation, CUPEU has had issues sending newsletters to the membership. We're still looking into the most effective solution by testing out other newsletter service options.

If you're reading this, great! Please set "" as a safe sender on Outlook, so you can continue to get these emails directly.

In the meantime, you can see the previous newsletters here.
