Inspire Overview


Beginning in October 2020, Inspire became the official academic advising platform for the University of Denver. Inspire is an "analytically-driven holistic advising technology that provides intelligence, collaboration, and engagement capabilities all in one application, equipping advisors and educators with data-informed opportunities to proactively address changing student needs." Furthermore, Inspire is the primary hub for students to connect with their team of advisors, schedule advising sessions, retrieve advising notes, and connect with campus resources.

Before reporting an Inspire system issue, it is recommended that users check both the Inspire Knowledge Base for information and answers to common questions and issues. 

inspire helpUsers can also find Inspire product and functionality guides within the tool, itself. Simply look for the blue "Help" button in the bottom, right-hand side of your screen (as seen here, left).
