Along with community engagement, patient care, and research, education is one of the four pillars undergirding CU Anschutz's 2021-25 Strategic Framework. For the purposes of this strategic process, education is defined as: 

the facilitation of learning opportunities and academic programming designed for the next generation of healthcare professionals, scientists, and the current workforce.

Strategic Priorities in Education Working Group 

The charge of the Strategic Priorities in Education is to:

  • Recommend 3-5 priorities of the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in education for the next five years.
  • Based on those priorities, develop and recommend 1-4 initiatives and key performance indicators (with milestones) that will demonstrate success.
  • Consider the broader campus community to create an important impact on the future of our campus and our stakeholders.
