Let’s Rise to the Challenge!
At the University of Denver, tomorrow’s inventors, authors, teachers, doctors, musicians, scientists, CEOs, and other leaders are given the tools and knowledge they need to lead successful lives that will make a positive difference in the lives of many others. They also learn the responsibilities that come with leadership. Now more than ever, this is a university where students start from a higher place and continue to ascend as successful alumni well after graduation.
We must now ask: What will the University of Denver be tomorrow and beyond? Each of DU’s distinctive characteristics—outstanding students, top faculty members, cutting-edge programs, and expansive academic opportunities—contributes to a campus experience that is far greater than the sum of its parts. Our responsibility is to preserve and build on these strengths, fuel compelling new initiatives, and do everything we can to make the University of Denver one of the world’s truly great academic institutions.
These are exciting times. The university is at a watershed moment, a crossroads in its history. Yes, we are an outstanding university. The next few years—those leading up to our 150th birthday in 2014—will determine whether we become a truly great institution, serving our students, our city and state, our country, and the world.
I invite you to become a part of our effort and vision. Your participation in this campaign is critical, and gifts of any size will help us meet our goals. Invest in DU. Invest in our faculty and our students. Invest in their talents and their energy and in all they will accomplish for the world that awaits them. We have been entrusted with a remarkable opportunity. Let’s rise to the challenge together!
