DU in the Community

"The University of Denver will be a great private university dedicated to the public good."

Game Camp

At the University of Denver, we conduct research and scholarship and develop programs that make a difference in our local, national and global communities. We're a private institution, and we're dedicated to the public good.

We live up to this commitment by engaging with the community through teaching and scholarship and building strong, long-term relationships through community organizing. We're also dedicated to performing research that focuses on improving individual lives and taking on the great issues of our day.

The center uses community-engaged methods in its work with faculty, staff, students, and communities to bridge learning and doing, advance discovery, connect change-makers, amplify university and community voices, galvanize tomorrows civic leaders and tackle grand challenges.
