About the Campaign

The University of Denver aspires to greatness. It’s that simple. We want to provide the programs and opportunities that give our students an exceptional foundation on which they will build their lives and careers.

We believe DU’s men and women deserve nothing less than excellence. They are the leaders of tomorrow, and it is our responsibility to ensure they have an outstanding education that will serve them and help them serve others.

The support of generations of DU alumni and friends has brought us to this point. Now, we have the chance to transform our vision into achievement through Ascend: The Campaign for the University of Denver. Our focus is on the people who make the DU community great—our students, faculty and coaches—and on gifts in support of academic programs and facilities.
