Office of InnovationThe Office of Innovation was created to increase agency for our students, grow educational innovation among professionals and strengthen partnerships across Kent Denver's communities to effectively engage our future.

The Institutes at Kent Denver

The Institutes at Kent Denver are an educational initiative managed by the Office of Innovation. Individual institutes strategically resource intentional areas of education critical to its future. In addition to partnerships with industry professionals, each institute has a restricted endowment to support its work. Kent Denver's three institutes complement our core liberal arts experience by providing enhanced programming, staffing and space in the areas of Entrepreneurship, Technology & Design and Wellness.

Anschutz-Hunt Institute for Entrepreneurial Education

The Anschutz-Hunt Institute for Entrepreneurial Education was founded in 2017. It is one of two institutes that directly resources the Office of Innovation. Through middle and upper school coursework, mentorship for entrepreneurial ventures and support for faculty integrating entrepreneurial principles in their classrooms, this institute empowers our community to turn good ideas into action.
