In the spirit of the University of Denver's commitment to the public good, DU’s regional networks recently hosted a nationwide day of service for alumni, families and friends. One day can make a world of difference.

Alumni living in Denver and Aurora spent a Saturday morning cleaning up Debore Park, while Pioneers around the country came together to take part in other activities working at food banks.

“Our Pioneers take very seriously our commitment to the public good, so this is an opportunity for more than 100,000 alumni around the world to all come together and to be a powerful force,” said Brian Elizardi, director of Alumni Relations. “It’s amazing what can happen when we all band together and we serve our communities.”

Alumni in Atlanta, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle took part in the DU Day of Global Service. There are more than 46,000 alumni in Denver and Aurora, and approximately 130,000 worldwide.
