Dear DU community members,

The University of Denver campus is coming alive. Budding plants and the sounds of nature remind us that spring is, indeed, on its way. The coming ofspring also means Earth Day is just around the corner. Earth Day is an opportunity to take action to make our campus and city more just and sustainable places to live, work and play. And it energizes our year-round commitment to sustainability and our ongoing work to be a carbon neutral, plastics-free and zero-waste institution.

We are pleased to announce this year’s Earth Day of DUing, DU’s largest volunteer event. We invite you to join over 500 of your colleagues, friends, classmates and neighbors in public service around the Denver Metro Area. The University has teamed up with over 25 different campus and community partners (local government agencies, non-profit organizations, and community action groups) to organize 33 different volunteer projects. You can spend your Day of DUing in a community garden, clearing litter from our parks and waterways, distributing seeds and trees or organizing items to be upcycled—and so much more! 

It all happens on April 22, 2022, starting with a kickoff breakfast on Carnegie Green. Come fuel up for your day, meet your teammates and get excited to serve the public good. Volunteer projects will be largely off campus, with transportation leaving DU at 9 a.m. and returning around 2:30 p.m.

This event embodies DU’s mission to be a great private university dedicated to the public good. It is a chance to make a tangible contribution to the many organizations and groups who help our community thrive. We hope you’ll join us and spend your Earth Day “DUing” some good!

Register here to be a part of the Earth Day of DUing.
