"At the University of Denver, we believe that the finest intellectual climate is one that welcomes and involves many different kinds of people. A family-friendly campus enriches the diversity of the University Community by facilitating the engagement of students, faculty, and staff who benefit from child care, elder care, and other family services. Fostering excellence at DU includes helping families make the most of quality assistance and resources to successfully balance scholarship, professional responsibilities, and care-giving."
Chancellor Robert Coombe
Caring for our families is a growing challenge for faculty, staff members, and students. Those who are parents or guardians want to insure the healthy growth and development of their children. Those with aging parents or relatives hope to provide comfort, companionship, and quality medical care for them. Many at DU fulfill both of these needs for their loved ones.Child Care and Family Resources is a website dedicated to the needs of DU caregivers. Our priority is to provide resources and services that strengthen and support families of students, faculty, and staff.
