Alumni are essential partners in creating the future of CU Denver.


Painting Our People and Our Purpose on Campus

We’ve partnered with Detour '08, MBA '12, the internationally acclaimed muralist and two-time CU Denver alumnus, to paint the picture of how CU Denver prepares learners from all walks of life to thrive.

Through a large scale art installation, each featuring a recent CU Denver graduate, Detour has brought to life what it is that makes this place so special.

CU Denver Names Internationally Acclaimed SmithGroup As Design Firm For New Engineering, Design and Computing Building

As plans for the university’s new engineering, design and computing building progress, Chancellor Michelle Marks used one word to describe the project: spectacular. Not only in the way it will transform the Speer Boulevard corridor but also in its purpose and mission to create a more equitable engineering education and workforce talent pipeline. In mid-March, the project reached a major milestone as campus leaders selected the internationally acclaimed and locally represented SmithGroup to design the building.
