In 2001, the DU Diversity Summit began with a few undergraduate students coming together to talk about diversity. The event has grown tremendously since then, now engaging up to six hundred participants annually.

In 2007, the University of Denver made an institutional commitment to Inclusive Excellence, the philosophical and practical concept that inclusiveness and excellence are one in the same, which guided the Summit focus to Include Excellence. Originally, the Diversity Summit highlighted the success and ambitions around IE and diversity of DU administration, faculty, staff and students but has grown to incorporate leaders in diversity and Inclusive Excellence from Denver, the region and the nation. The Diversity Summit has featured keynote speakers active within academia as well as those from the business sector.
