Message from the President

Welcome to Davenport

As you explore attending this university, I’m confident you’ll discover what I experience daily: faculty and staff enthused about their work, proud of our quality, excited about our potential, and – above all – dedicated to preparing students for rewarding careers.

Helping students gain real-world knowledge that employers demand is our tradition, and serving students with quality is one of our highest values.

We continue to raise the quality bar and have set a strategic course that we can measure – by the success of our students in the classroom, by those who graduate and are employed in their field of study, by employers who tell us our graduates are prepared to excel in the workplace, and by alumni and donors who support our mission.

Davenport University truly strives to have an impact on the communities we serve and help today’s students become the professionals and leaders of tomorrow.

I appreciate your interest in learning more about DU. Please explore this website, and then I encourage you to call an admissions representative, visit one of our campuses, or speak with one of our students or alumni to get the full story.

Thank you for considering Davenport University.

Richard J. Pappas, Ed.D.
President
