Prospective Teachers

Teach a Class at CFU!

If you would like to teach a class at Colorado Free University, the deadline for submission for our Late Summer/early Fall 2024 catalog is Friday, June 7, 2024. Submit your proposal early for first consideration. To send in a proposal, email Helen Hand (CFU President) at

However, you may submit a proposal to teach a class at any time to be considered for the next review/hiring cycle.

We are looking for teachers who are passionate about their topic, have expertise and good communication skills.  People who are experts in their fields, business people who are in the trenches themselves, or creatives who love to share are our best instructors.  You don’t have to have teaching credentials to teach a class.

Once you submit your proposal, we will dialog with you by email to get more information.  If the ideas seems to be something that might work in our catalog, we will set up a time for you to meet with CFU President, Helen Hand, to discuss your ideas.  Sometimes we cannot accept new course ideas because it is a topic that is already covered in our offerings, so browse through our courses first to see the classes we already have.
