Save the dates for Founders Celebration 2017: March 1-2

Finding our Founders

One of DU’s most treasured traditions, the annual Founders Celebration recognizes the individuals throughout the decades – from our founding in 1864 to the present day – whose dedication has made an indelible impact on the University of Denver. We celebrate this event each year to honor their visionary commitment to our University and to our world, to create lasting connections and to experience the transformational power of philanthropy, community and intellect. Each one of us can be a founder of the University of Denver. This celebration is for all of us connected to DU and what we will do to make DU what it is today and what it will be tomorrow.
