The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) is committed to providing leadership, guidance, and resources in support of the University of Denver’s commitment to building a more diverse and inclusive institution. Recognizing that this commitment requires that DU establish and sustain a dramatically rich campus climate and culture that deepens our intellectual environment, ODI is responsible for addressing Inclusive Excellence and diversity matters that impact the academic experience at DU for faculty and students. For example, ODI supports DU’s efforts to advance diversity, equity, and Inclusive Excellence by providing the campus community with opportunities to extend their knowledge, perspectives, and experiences vital to performing effectively in a culturally diverse and globally connected society.

Call for Proposals for the 4th Annual Internationalization Summit to be held at the University of Denver on Friday, April 14, 2017. The priority deadline is Monday, February 27th, 2017.
This year's summit is organized around "Refugees, Migration and the internationalization of Higher Education". We believe that this theme is both timely and important to higher education given the always increasing movement of peoples around the world and particularly the current refugee crises in the world. In particular, the summit intends to be a venue to explore the interplay between these phenomena in meaningful and purposeful ways.
Applications for 2017 - 2018 IRISE Research Grants for Faculty, Graduate Students, and Undergraduate Students are now available. Applications must be completed by March 1, 2017.
