Home For Media

News @ DU is the primary source for news and information about Davenport University. We bring timely stories about life at DU, learning and career success  — whether it’s a feature about student accomplishments, a faculty expert piece or a news release about about a business partnership. This site is published by Marketing & Communications.

If you’re a reporter or editor seeking information about Davenport University, our students, our colleges or campuses — or if you need a faculty expert to add information or context to a story — we can help.

All media inquiries should be channeled through Communications. When employees are contacted by the media, they will notify Communications immediately, before providing any information or responding to questions.
