We match their passion with an education that is rooted in equity and diversity, technology, proven approaches, and real-world practice.

The university recently completed an ambitious Strategic Plan that repositions CU Denver to be a public urban research university that works for all: learners of all kinds and at all stages of life, industries and employers that need talent ready to hit the ground running, and communities requiring new solutions and discoveries.
