New DU Tradition: International Day of Peace

1st annual DU International Day of Peace Sept. 21

Our theme for this year is Many Stories, One DU. As we come together as a community and look back on a year of many challenges and tensions in our world, we want to recognize the power of peace. Please plan to join our campus in celebrating our individual stories and find ways to celebrate our differences.

International Day of Peace
