A Policy Maker & Teacher

DU students have a rare opportunity to learn from one of most important and influential voices in Colorado government and education.

Peter Groff, a senior lecturer at DU's Institute for Public Policy Studies, currently serves as President of the Colorado State Senate. When he took the post in 2008, he became the first African-American to hold the position.  

Groff, who received his JD from the University's Sturm College of Law in 1992, also leads DU's Center for African-American Policy. The center's goal is to positively change the lives of African-Americans through academics, public discourse and community service.
