ENGAGING ALUMNI & FRIENDS
Growing regional engagement
Through the launch of DU’s five regional offices nationwide, we are now equipped to provide more opportunities for our alumni and friends to connect with each other and the University. Through large events and one-on-one meetings, Pioneers from San Diego to Chicago to New York City – and many cities in between – are socializing and networking together. Over the last several months, the regional teams have reimagined the power of the Pioneer network through conducting listening tours, curating unique experiences, and developing communities in every corner of the US.
Pioneering Denver takes you behind the scenes and into the minds with the influential leaders who are fueling innovation, increasing access and driving growth for one of the nation’s up and coming vanguard cities and explores in conversation the University of Denver’s role to strengthen and reinforce the local innovation economy. From fireside chats with Denver’s leading disruptors to the best beer and food that the DU alumni network has to offer, experience a new way to connect with the top thinkers and doers in the Mile High City.
Alumni Weekend 2.0
Anchored around DU’s prestigious alumni awards, our Alumni Weekend celebrates the accomplishments of the greater Pioneer Family. In addition to highlighting our best and brightest, the weekend’s signature Gold Dinner, welcomes the newest class of graduates into our extended alumni community. Through various activities and events, this spirited weekend provides an opportunity to reminisce and connect with DU’s expansive global network. We showcase what’s new on campus and provide unique experiences for the food and wine lover as it coincides with Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management’s DU Vin festival of wine, food, music and art.
Special thanks to the Engaging Alumni and Friends working group who helped us in our strategy: Kevin Archer, Dan Jacobs, Anthea Johnson Rooen, Brandon MacNeill and Mona Spitz.
