Designing & Developing Knowledge

When high-achieving faculty members develop into distinguished scholars who shape their fields, they also enhance the reputation of the University. During the next decade, DU will accelerate engagement with new shapes of knowledge. As detailed in Transformative Direction Two, we will leverage the growing interest among students and faculty to connect with one another outside their departments and schools and to be challenged by perspectives that lie outside their disciplines. This approach to knowledge is marked by curiosity, risk-taking and adventure. It mirrors the world our graduates will enter.  

We will also recruit, strengthen and retain outstanding faculty to discover and design knowledge—or pursue research in its many manifestations—in a robust intellectual environment of curiosity, adventure and service to the public good. We especially aspire to address complex challenges facing the world by collaborating across academic units to create, preserve, transmit and apply the knowledge we produce.
