The University of Denver …
Where focused research and scholarship provide an extraordinary academic experience.

Colleges and universities in America are granted billions of dollars of public funds each year for research and development—particularly in the sciences and engineering. And a growing segment of the public is understandably asking hard questions and demanding greater accountability regarding the actual impact of this research on their lives. 

At the University of Denver, we are firmly focused on the impact of our work as scholars. We identify beneficiaries and seek to optimize the improvement of their lives through our research. Collectively, we leverage our intellectual capital to generate solutions for the great issues of our time. Whether DU faculty members are modeling the long-term development of the economy, separating and identifying genetic fingerprints through DNA analysis, or composing new concerti, they are striving to make a difference in the quality of life throughout the world.
