A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:

Both the Center for Multicultural Excellence and the Sturm College of Law provide programs to increase persistence in higher education and support the process towards becoming faculty.

These programs include:
The Sistah Network, which is committed to helping Black women who are graduate students at the University of Denver contend with the pervasive challenges they face related to graduate student socialization and academic persistence.
The Latina/o Graduate Association which recognizes the need to unite the community of Latina/o graduate and professional students and commits to:

• Enrich the intellectual and social community for the Latina/o graduate and professional student.

• Advocate for Latina/o graduate and professional students, faculty and other members of the University of Denver community.

• Support University of Denver in the recruitment, retention, and successful completion of Latina/o graduate and professional students.

• Encourage Latina/o undergraduate and K-12 students to pursue higher education.

The University of Denver Interdisciplinary Research Incubator for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE), a project funded by the Renew DU Committee, is the result of a successful "incubator" proposal in response to the pilot phase of the Provost's Renew DU process in 2013.

As such, IRISE seeks to establish a needed intellectual structure for students and faculty that will, facilitate the interdisciplinary teaching and learning, collaboration, research, scholarship, and creative works that seek to promote equality in historically underrepresented communities, and develop, support, and implement academic programs and activities that seek to promote the advancement of historically underrepresented populations in the Academy.
