Inspiring progress from the heart of Denver

Seated at the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains, Denver's home to a diverse population of professionals, artists, entrepreneurs and community leaders. It's a hub of intellectual conversation and scholarly development, with an ambition for spurring social progress that informs change far beyond our city limits. Rich with opportunity, Denver offers inspiring experiences for both students and professionals that no other city can promise.

At DU, we convene with the host of benefits that Denver offers, building networks that span the gaps between education and community. Through partnerships with community organizations and local leaders, we capitalize on DU's considerable influence in Denver and Colorado. Our educational approach centers around community advocacy, empowering graduates to engage with today's most pressing challenges whether they choose to pursue commerce, government or the arts.
