The University of Denver …
A university developing the leaders for a changing America.

Diversity and inclusive excellence are essential elements of an institution’s strength and a prerequisite for true excellence. The demographic and cultural changes engulfing America, especially in Colorado and throughout the West, present an opportunity to embrace the extraordinary human richness unfolding before DU’s faculty and students—the leaders of tomorrow whose lives ultimately will bring about a truly just and inclusive nation.

The University of Denver is not simply diverse. Rather, we are committed to developing a culture of inclusion that sustains intellectual excellence. We create and share the knowledge affecting the welfare of millions—educating the students who will take their places as the leaders of industries and nations. We are committed to meeting the responsibility conferred by our place in this diverse, rapidly globalized society.
