Alumni Events

Based on extensive feedback from the Kent Denver alumni community, we are focused on providing the following opportunities to our graduates: Alumni Lifelong Learning, Alumni Back on Campus, and Alumni Supporting Current Students. To address these interests, each year, the Kent Denver Alumni Office and Alumni Board plan a slate of events and volunteer opportunities on campus and throughout the Denver area. We also have yearly Regional Events to connect with alumni around the country. Additional event details are below and will be shared by email in the monthly Alumni Connection e-newsletter!
