Vice Chancellor's Letter

Dear Pioneer Family,

As a proud member of Pioneer Nation, you know first-hand that DU Athletics & Recreation has a long standing tradition of success in competition, in the classroom and in the community. Our student-athletes are amongst the best in country and continue to strive for comprehensive excellence in all that they do.

Thanks to the generous financial support of our Pioneer Movement donors our student-athletes tallied yet another remarkable year in 2017-2018, including

  • Skiing – 24th National Championship (33rd overall for DU)
  • 11 Conference Championships
  • 11 NCAA Tournament appearances
  • 93 all-conference honors and 27 All-American honors
  • 83 Hornbeck Scholars (4.0 GPA), 155 students on the Dean’s List

With your support of our 326 student athletes, 17 Division I sport programs and 32 club sport teams, DU will remain amongst the most competitive and successful athletics departments in the country as we continue to provide a quality experience for our student-athletes. I hope that you will consider investing in the lives of our student-athletes this year by making a gift to the Pioneer Movement Annual Fund. Please know that every donor and every dollar makes a direct impact on our student-athletes!

Thank you for your commitment to Denver Athletics & Recreation.

Go Pioneers!
