Enhancing & Expanding the Learning Environment

In Transformative Direction One, DU commits to exploring innovative ways to create a learning environment that expands education beyond traditional boundaries and scaffolds critical reflection – across courses, program, and campus and community and globe. Consistent with research and emerging best practices in higher education, DU IMPACT 2025 will meet student and faculty demand for educational experiences that tie together ideas from curricular and co-curricular experiences, inside and outside the classroom and campus, courses, and areas of study. DU will evolve these opportunities and aid students in navigating them to create a cohesive and compelling education. Read about how we are evolving these opportunities below.
