"The University of Denver will be a great private university dedicated to the public good."
At the University of Denver, we conduct research and scholarship and develop programs that make a difference in our local, national and global communities. We're a private institution, and we're dedicated to the public good.
We live up to this commitment by engaging with the community through teaching and scholarship and building strong, long-term relationships through community organizing. We're also dedicated to performing research that focuses on improving individual lives and taking on the great issues of our day.
