Institute for Public Policy Studies


Institute for Public Policy Studies


The Institute for Public Policy Studies relies on philanthropic donations to make possible the work of the faculty and  programs that contribute to the academic experiences of undergraduate, professional and graduate students.

ASCEND, University of Denver's comprehensive fundraising campaign, raised nearly  $490 million. Gifts of all sizes help meet the most pressing needs of the Institute. Endowment giving establishes permanent resources to support the Institute.
