Why Sustainability?

The Denver area faces many sustainability challenges in the present and near future due to its climate, geography and increased population growth. Working towards a more sustainable future in areas like food, waste, transportation and pollution are some of the most important and complex issues of our time. Denver's fast growing economy and increasing diversity place DU in a unique position to improve the future of the region. The University of Denver is committed to inclusive solutions, cultivating leaders who can put our societies on a path that allows future generations to flourish.
