DEAN partners with Denver Public Schools (DPS), the Auraria Campus (Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver), Emily Griffith Technical College, the City and County of Denver, non-profit, philanthropic and corporate partners to develop a persistence and completion strategy to serve our most vulnerable students.

DEAN brings members of its partner organizations together to work on targeted initiatives and pilot programs for students and families in Denver Public Schools, on the Auraria Campus and at Emily Griffith Technical College. DEAN partners use shared metrics to assess needs, identify overlap, execute projects and report progress.  By creating a continuous learning and accountability culture, DEAN ensures forward momentum.
