Building Equity at DU

Since the launch of the annual Diversity Summit twenty-one years ago, the University of Denver has worked to engage and critically question the ways in which we as a community (students, staff, faculty, alumni, leadership, and community partners) could more fully embody our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). DU’s DEI work will engage in five areas of impact, each with specific action items, aimed at securing leadership, taking action, and increasing accountability and consistency across the university. This action plan will serve as a new platform as we enter into the next stages of our vision for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive DU.
