DU Priorities


DU’s places foster creativity and innovation, define the distinctive DU student experience, support new and unprecedented discoveries, and improve the well-being of people both on our campus and far beyond it.

With a unique two-campus experience that gives students the best of urban experiential learning and the wide-open spaces of nature to learn and explore, DU’s places are central to our student’s educational journey. The Denver Difference will broaden those horizons even further, creating new spaces for research excellence, innovation, athletic distinction and more.
