DU and Engagement with Denver and Region

The Denver metro region is dynamic, breathtaking and culturally diverse. The University should be a gateway for our community to experience our city, state and even our world. To that end, we will provide our students, faculty, staff and neighbors with a vibrant district, engaging events and innovative entrepreneurial opportunities. We will explore and support developing opportunities for faculty and students to live in this district, further blurring the boundaries between the campus and the community. At the same time, we will partner in Innovation and entrepreneurship in Denver and promote a culture that emphasizes the public good. We will expand partnerships that contribute to these efforts and take active steps to engage and support faculty, staff, alumni and friends. Read about our progress below.
