Through Ascend: The Campaign for the University of Denver, we are substantially expanding and deepening the University’s intellectual environment—ensuring the finest minds in academia are educating DU students.
We are significantly increasing financial support for those students, so that the best and brightest are able to enroll and remain at the University, regardless of financial background. We are strengthening program funds, supporting innovative classroom teaching and dynamic research opportunities. And we are continuing to enhance our campus infrastructure.
The University of Denver is a place where great minds among our students and faculty cross disciplines to study and debate the major issues of the day—and develop solutions for them. Over the past two decades, we’ve climbed a long and steep hill, investing our resources wisely, determined to succeed, with our gaze fixed firmly on the highest possible quality. Now, our University is poised to take flight. Through Ascend: The Campaign for the University of Denver, we will do so—for the benefit of our students, our alumni, and our fellow human beings.
