Points of Pride

Colorado Women's College of the University of Denver prides itself on providing a challenging academic experience for a diverse community of women, many of whom are women of color, first generation college students, and for many, are first generation American citizens.


The University of Denver was founded in 1864 as Colorado Seminary by John Evans, Colorado Territory's second governor. The seminary closed its doors temporarily after a few years in the unstable economic landscape of Denver's gold rush. However in 1880, Colorado Seminary re-opened as the University of Denver, and in 1888, Colorado Women's College was founded and officially opened it's doors in 1909.
