Summer conferences and events on campus
(June 11, 2013) There are more than 50 cultural and academic conferences being held on campus this summer. The Lamont School of Music hosts its Summer Pre-College Academy June 16–30, as well as the annual Rafael Mendez Brass Institute July 14–20 and the Pan Ramajay Summer Steel Drum Festival July 21–26.
Academics are well-represented on campus over the summer as well: In addition to DU's regular summer-quarter classes, the Publishing Institute holds its annual four-week course in July; August's Pedagogy of Privilege Conference explores ways in which privilege impacts education, social justice work, helping professions and research; participants talk medieval philosophy at the Philosophy in the Abrahamic Traditions Conference, co-hosted by the philosophy departments at DU and Marquette University and DU's Center for Judaic Studies; and the HERS Summer Institute in July addresses issues facing women in higher education.
Elsewhere on campus, DU is also hosting Internal Drive's computer, video game design and robotics camps for kids; the STARS national conference for youth leaders; Play Week West — a chamber-music program for adults — and the SHIFT Conference, which brings together 250 new Daniels Fund Scholars before they head off to college.
Finally, for kids looking to break a sweat this summer, the University of Denver campus is home to several athletic camps and clinics — many led by DU coaches — focused on such sports as basketball, soccer, gymnastics, lacrosse and volleyball.
