Office of Faculty Affairs

The Colorado School of Public Health Office of Faculty Affairs provides guidance and service to the school's faculty, department chairs, and dean as well as the Office of the Provost, our partner and affiliate institutions, and other constituents. The office supports, organizes, and manages diverse processes related to faculty appointments, promotion & tenure, reviews & evaluations, academic policies, as well as faculty development & administration.


Instructional design support

We retain the services of Christine Mousavi, a Senior Instructional Designer housed in the school's Center for Public Health Practice, to support ColoradoSPH faculty as you build or update your courses. She has tools, resources, and best practices expertise to help you to make your courses more engaging and enriching​. While Christine's primary expertise is in online instructional design, she can also help with hybrid and in-person courses. Christine can help you organize your course in Canvas, design and record interactive lectures, develop activities (for fully online or blended classrooms), and more.
