Office of Diversity and Inclusion serves the entire DU campus

University of Denver

Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) is committed to providing leadership, guidance, and resources in support of the University of Denver’s commitment to building a more diverse and inclusive institution.  Recognizing that this commitment requires that DU establish and sustain a dramatically rich campus climate and culture that deepens our intellectual environment, ODI is responsible for addressing Inclusive Excellence and diversity matters that impact the academic experience at DU for faculty and students.  For example, ODI supports DU’s efforts to advance diversity, equity, and Inclusive Excellence by providing the campus community with opportunities to extend their knowledge, perspectives, and experiences vital to performing effectively in a culturally diverse and globally connected society.

White Fragility

 RSI Logo The Roger Salters (RSI) Writing Institute is intended to support students in their academic writing process. DU participants from across all disciplines will form a cohort and work through each of the sessions together to build planning, writing, peer reviewing, and editing skills necessary to produce scholarly and academic work. The workshop series culminates in a two-day Writing Retreat each June.  For more information please email IRISE or check out the IRISE website

The Borstein Somoza Prep Program (BSP) is an success program focused on the academic achievement of historically underrepresented students. The program engages BSP scholars from their first day throughout their tenure at DU. In particular, BSP supports the persistence of students through their undergraduate careers and assists in their transition into graduate programs of study. For more information please email IRISE or check out the BSP website.
