The Denver Advantage

Our campus—seated at the south end of Denver and near the edge of the Rocky Mountains—is a hub for intellectual growth, artistic expression and entrepreneurial ambition in our region. Students who join us through online programs can reap the benefits of our on-campus resources, including career services, the writing center and a vast array of digital knowledge and reference material housed at the Anderson Academic Commons library.

We'll connect you to a wealth of resources and opportunities stemming from our Denver location, including internships and research initiatives, job placement, professional networking and career advising—whatever you need to turn your online education into action. From there, you'll be part of a sprawling alumni community, ready to provide support remotely or from hubs scattered across the nation.
