A Great Private University Dedicated to the Public Good

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.
