Priorities

Schools & College Initiatives

We see a future in which DU is nationally recognized and emulated as a new kind of institution of higher education.

A prominent and accessible destination for students driven by purposeful ambition and the desire to make a difference in the world. A powerhouse for research, service and knowledge that makes a positive impact on the human condition, and a place where broad thinking flourishes, advancing society through robust intellectual inquiry.

We know that an education with real value must deliver more than just an incredible degree. It must give students the skills and deep grounding to thrive in a complex and rapidly changing world.

DU’s school and unit initiatives are nurturing student passion and building their confidence to move from simply calling for change to making it through education, experience and action.
