Crisis management

In the event of an emergency or weather-related closure on campus, your student will immediately be notified via email and can sign up for alerts on their phone as well. The DU website will display an alert whenever necessary, but the best tactic to stay up-to-date on campus happenings is to follow us on Twitter. For any questions, consult our Office of Emergency Preparedness site.

DU Parents Program

Our Parents Program is your primary resource for communication, events and opportunities for involvement. From reading parent "survival guides" to finding academic counseling to sending your student a cake, our Parents Program can help you stay connected to your student's DU experience.

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.
