About DU After Dark

The University of Denver's Health and Counseling Center (HCC) and the Office of Student Engagement are proud to support student-led late-night, substance-free events that build community among DU students.

Through the DU After Dark initiative, teams of DU students are invited to apply for funding to support their proposed late-night, substance-free events. Teams selected for funding will work with staff from the Department of Health Promotion within HCC or the Office of Student Engagement to implement and evaluate their event.

DU After Dark is supported by funds from the Girouard Endowment.
