The University of Denver is a great private university focused on cultivating lives of purpose for our students, creating knowledge for the future and, in all we do, being dedicated to the public good.
This greatness and dedication to the public good is manifested in the kinds of people that we graduate, what they do with their lives, and our passionate commitment to use our knowledge to address the great issues of the day.
Creating new opportunities through collaboration
(Jan. 26, 2015) Across academia today, you hear calls to "break down silos." As higher education addresses challenges such as meeting enrollment goals, increasing access for academically qualified and traditionally underrepresented students and exploring new ways to increase the effectiveness of our work, these calls center on a need for departments and academic units to work together collaboratively.
These subjects will be the topic of many conversations over the next couple months with the Shape of Knowledge working group (part of the Transformative Directions strategic planning effort). This working group will be consulting with deans, faculty members, students and others on and off campus to think about what the future might look like at DU. Read Chancellor Chopp's full message
