Our Community Connections

The EDP program builds on the prior successes of the DMS and eMAD programs, which have made significant contributions to DU's mission to serve as a great private university working for the public good, as well as expanding the classroom into new professional realms.  EDP faculty (individually as well as collectively) have strong track records of making engaged contributions.  In unique classes, internships, and projects, our students have worked with institutions ranging from TEDxDU, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, the Denver Art Museum, Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver Public Schools, and Denver Open Media.

Many of our students have taken internships with local nonprofits to help use their digital talents and insights for the good of the community:

  • working with The Living City Block to imagine ways that games can teach about sustainability
  • creating websites for specific Denver cultural communities enabling easier communications
  • designing interfaces for mobile multimedia tour guide applications
  • engaging the community in digitally enabled conversations about designing a sustainable future during the Democratic National Convention
