Pursue a Passion or Interest Through Enriching Short Courses

Gaining knowledge and staying informed about local, global, and current events are crucial to personal development and enrichment. From exploring new ideas and perspectives to connecting with a wider community, lifelong learning has benefits in the workplace and beyond.

In today’s fast-paced world, it can be a challenge to find the time to seek out knowledge, so the Enrichment Program at the University of Denver has developed unique opportunities for lifelong learning in ever-changing times.

This fall, more than 40 courses and one-night lectures are being offered entirely online via Zoom through the Enrichment Program. These info-packed courses don’t come with tests or homework; they are simply bite-sized sessions that provide a deeper understanding of current issues, personal interests, and professional skills.

Several options offered in September are dedicated to subjects that affect local, national, and global business, community, and economy. One-night lectures include:

  • Supply Chains: Saving the World One Link at a Time (Sept. 10, 2020, 7-9 p.m.)
