Campus Inclusiveness

More than a niche

With a strengthened commitment to diversity on campus, we strive to make space for every individual, every group and every voice. We believe true inclusiveness means seeking out those voices and inviting them into the conversation through cultural events, intergroup dialogues and support services dedicated to students from historically underrepresented groups and identities. After all, college is about discovering yourself and finding the people and passions that make you feel at home. Join us in growing our community.

Diversity at DU

On our campus, you'll find groups and leadership programs designed for students and community members from historically marginalized groups. These provide common ground and support from those who share your identity and who can offer empathetic perspectives. We believe in helping students from every background thrive and find their home on our campus, whether that's through cultural activities, the Diversity Summit or student groups organized around shared culture.
