The Office of Human Resources understands that to build a world-class city, means investing in city employees to ensure that they are well prepared and trained to meet the evolving challenges of a growing city. In October 2013, the Office of Human Resources officially launched the city’s first ever Denver City Employee University or “City University.” with the goal to: Expand Minds, Awaken Innovators and Prepare Progressive Leaders to serve Denver residents and to truly deliver a world-class city.
City University is an online portal that not only modernizes how training is delivered, but also enhances and broadens the City’s development tools – focused on critical business needs such as leadership, customer service, business acumen and information technology. In addition, the Office of Human Resources has established partnerships with DeVry University, Capella University, University of Phoenix, Regis University, University of the Rockies, University of Denver Colorado Women's College, UnitedHealthcare and Kaiser Permanente to support our efforts and to provide extended continuing education and awareness resources to city employees.
Through City University we make the most important investment in the success of all city employees and ensure that we continue to properly serve and address the needs of Denver residents today and in the future.
