A Great Private University Dedicated to the Public Good


The University of Denver is a great private university dedicated to the public good.

This greatness and dedication to the public good must be manifested in the kinds of people that we graduate, what they do with their lives and in the manner in which we leverage our collective intellectual capital against the great issues of the day.

The University recently announced its incoming 18th chancellor, Rebecca Chopp.

Gregg Kvistad, DU executive vice chancellor and provost, assumed all chancellor duties on Aug. 1. Provost Kvistad's interim role will carry through until our new chancellor, Rebecca Chopp, assumes those duties no later than Sept. 1, 2014. 

The 17th chancellor, Robert Coombe, retired July 31, 2014.
