New Feature: Course Tag

When registering for classes, students will now be able to identify and select courses that cultivate the innovator’s mindset by selecting the “XITE” course designation in the DU course catalogue. This will help steer you towards the resources and offerings to best support your entrepreneurial and innovator interests!

For faculty members who are interested in listing their course with an XITE course designation, contact Assistant Director of Academic Innovation, Jessica Neumann.
