DU IMPACT 2025

We're seeing sweeping changes in higher education that have an enormous impact on our students, our community and our world. We’re innovating around our strengths in teaching, learning and discovery, and accelerating the ways research can address society’s most vexing problems.

We call this vision DU IMPACT 2025. It’s the result of thousands of interviews with students, faculty, friends, community partners, families and critical supporters. Led by Chancellor Rebecca Chopp, we spent 18 months listening, learning, collaborating and crafting this strategic plan.

Turning our ideas into reality, our 10 working groups collaborate across campus and our community to bring IMPACT 2025 to life.
