Digital Accessibility Training Flyer

Digital Accessibility Training

May 17th 4 PM | Zoom
So much of our world today is digital, from emails to presentations to virtual meetings and events. It can be easy to forget that systems that work for some of us don't work for all of us, especially people with disabilities. In this training, student employees will learn how to navigate important accessibility considerations to make your digital content more accessible to everyone. We recommend that this training be counted as paid professional development — please speak with your supervisor to see if this is possible. This training will be most relevant to student employees who plan, implement, and assess programs or events, but all are welcome. If you would be better able to participate in this webinar with an accommodation, or for other accessibility questions, send us a note at We want everyone to be able to fully engage! For students participating in the Student Employees Achieve (SEA) Badge program, this training will fulfill the Technology Competency requirement.


4D Experience Symposium | May 18

4D Symposium

May 18 9:30 am - 5:30 pm | Community Commons
The 2023 4D Symposium held on May 18 from 9:30 am - 5:30 pm in the Community Commons is designed to bring together campus stakeholders - faculty, administrators, staff, and students - to learn more about the 4-Dimensional (4D) Experience and share progress and models around elevating this work. Throughout the day, the 4D team as well as a variety of faculty, staff, and student speakers will be presenting sessions on how they see 4D integrating with their experience at DU, as well as the ways they envision the future of 4D taking shape. We hope this event will inspire our community to support holistic learning and development experiences for our students through integrating the four dimensions of advancing intellectual growth, exploring character, promoting well-being, and pursuing careers and lives of purpose.

Provost's Lunch

Thank you for taking the Thriving Quotient Survey!


In winter quarter, the university administered the Thriving Quotient Survey to all undergraduate students. We had more than 200 students respond to the survey, and we were able to use all of the responses to better understand your experiences as students. We found that the majority of students who responded are thriving (64%). Areas related to diverse citizenship (such as spending time making a difference in their communities, or interacting with people whose viewpoints differ from their own) are closely connected to thriving at DU, whereas the respondents shared that Social Connectedness (such as making friends) was the area of biggest challenge.


As a result of this survey, we want to make sure that students are aware of the opportunities available to make the most of your time at DU and connect with other students. If you’re not sure how to get involved or what opportunities may be available for you, you can talk with your professors, advisors, or a student success coach for ideas, and take a look at the many campus opportunities available for students.


Additionally, we’re always looking for ways to thank you for the time it takes to complete these important surveys! Students who took this survey were randomly entered into a drawing for a free lunch and conversation with Provost Clark. If you have other suggestions for what would incentivize YOU to take a survey and you’ve never taken a survey before, please share your suggestions here.

Crimson & Gold Awards 2023

Nominations Close Tomorrow for Crimson & Gold Awards!!

Outstanding Awards

Nominations for the Oustanding Student, Outstanding Student Organization, Outstanding Student Organization Advisor and Outstanding Faculty/Staff awards ask nominators to consider the following:

-How does the nominee demonstrate excellence in leadership to the University of Denver community?

-How does the nominee demonstrate excellence in service to the University of Denver community?

- How does the nominee exemplify and advance one of the dimensions of the 4-Dimensional Student Experience?

The Summit Awards

The Summit Award is one of the University of Denver’s most prestigious awards. It is given annually to one faculty member, one staff member, one student organization, and up to 10 graduating seniors who best exemplify the spirit of the mission of University of Denver in their work on campus and in the Denver community. It is the highest honor given to an undergraduate student. The Summit Award is different from Outstanding Individual Awards in that it recognizes the overall person or organization for their continued efforts during their time at DU rather than just over the past year.

Recipients of this award exemplify the high peaks of the Summit, which are representative of a bold, purposeful, vision for a global future. They should also exemplify the entire of the mountain range, representing the unique, innovative perspective that transforms the University and Denver community

Think of it as a lifetime achievement award for their time at DU!
