A brief description of the institution’s participation in an external network of anchor institutions:

The Denver Anchor Network (DAN) provides a mechanism to accelerate the learning and progress of anchor institutions in the Denver metro area. The DAN is a project of The Denver Foundation, Mile High Connects and the Center for Community Wealth Building. DAN’s vision is for anchor institutions, as powerful economic engines in the region, to commit to aligning institutional resources to close the racial wealth and economic opportunity gaps in the Denver metro area. Strategies include, but are not limited to, local procurement, local hiring and local investing.

In partnership with Denver Anchor Network, the University of Denver has been identifying potential partners and opportunities to direct our university spending toward local women- and minority-owned business enterprises (WMBEs). When we do this, our money stays in our local economy and helps all members of our communities thrive.
