The University of Denver
Located in Denver, Colorado, the University of Denver is an accredited, independent, co-educational institution of national reputation.
Founded in 1864 by pioneers including John Evans, second governor of the Colorado Territory and founder of Northwestern University, the University was originally chartered as Colorado Seminary. When the Seminary was reorganized in 1880, the University of Denver was established as the degree granting body and Colorado Seminary as the property holding corporation. This organization continues today, and “Colorado Seminary” still appears on some official documents of the University of Denver.
The University’s enrollment today is drawn from all 50 states and numerous foreign countries. The University of Denver is the largest independent university in the Rocky Mountain region, with about 10,400 students. The campus is located on University Boulevard off Interstate 25. The University is commonly referred to as “DU,” and its athletic teams (all NCAA Division I) are called the Pioneers. The Pioneer men’s hockey team won the NCAA Division I National Championship in 2004 and 2005.
In addition to its undergraduate programs, the University of Denver offers more than 100 master’s degree programs, 20 doctoral degree programs, and 40 graduate-level certificates. Graduate degrees are offered in the liberal arts and sciences, business, law, education, international studies, professional psychology, and social work.
