  • Can the University support me as a community member from an impacted region?

    Since we are a campus with global reach, we ask for kindness and respect from our community, as there are faculty, staff and students with direct connections to the impacted regions.

    • Compassion and Care: The University community will remain steadfast in its commitment to provide care and offer empathy to our international students, many of whom are facing incredible challenges, including not being able to travel home as well as daily worry about their loved ones back home.
    • International Student Support: Dozens of faculty and staff are working hard to accommodate the needs of our international students who may be unable or unwilling to return home during the summer due to the virus. For our graduating seniors, we are working to build pathways to graduate enrollment, allowing them to keep their visas and advance their education. For matriculated students, we are identifying summer housing, classes and work opportunities, should they choose to stay in Denver.
