Join the Adventure

The Kennedy Mountain Campus transforms the student experience to meet the demands of an exciting future. In providing access to both an urban and mountain campus, we are creating a singular education rooted in the 4D Experience and uniquely positioning our students to discover their purpose and make a difference in the world. 

Now is the time to invest in this initiative. Your support will aid in our vision to create an experience that enhances every DU student’s journey, while strengthening our commitment to fully fund the campus through private philanthropy.

Thanks to the generosity of Andy (BSBA ’70) and Barbara Taylor, generations of DU students will experience leadership development, exploration and community-building at the James C. Kennedy Mountain Campus. In recognition of their $20 million gift to fund programming and operations at the Kennedy Mountain Campus, DU has named the Andy and Barbara Taylor Upper Camp in their honor. The Taylor Upper Camp is the central, physical hub for all student living, dining and activity at the mountain campus.
