Based on direction from the University’s Senior Leadership, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and other health officials, The University of Denver has decided to cancel all Summer Conference Programming, including Internship Housing, for the 2020 Conference Season. Our top priority is the health and safety of our guests, students, staff, and DU Community. We feel this is the most adequate way to ensure everyone’s safety during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions regarding this cancellation, please feel free to reach out to Brianna Culberson, Associate Director of Summer Conferencing. 
For additional information regarding COVID-19, please refer to DU COVID-19 website, Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.
