CUE Leadership Council

The Center for Urban Education Leadership Council is a broad-based coalition of Denver-area school and business leaders. The Council works to correct the persistent mismatch between teacher and student demographics. We are dedicated to preparing world-class teachers who are competent and confident in urban classrooms.

Together, CUE leaders and Denver-area school leaders are working to solve the teacher shortage. We invite you to be a part of the Council and help shape the future of teaching in Denver-area schools.

If you want to participate on the Leadership Council, contact Rosanne Fulton  (303-637-4334 or rosanne.fulton@unco.edu). We will send you our regular e-newsletter (details below).
