Support Excellence and Community—For the Difference

The Denver Difference campaign is our most ambitious yet. It is a turning point that sets a new bar for higher education, and marks a dramatic shift in conventional thinking about what the university experience can and should be.

DU is setting the bar with our approach to higher education, developing and preparing students to be successful in life in every way – and this campaign makes it possible.

We’re raising $1B to firmly establish the University of Denver as the standard to match. Help us show the world what DU can do.
