Alumni Benefits

Welcome Davenport and Predecessor Institution Alumni!

Davenport University is celebrating its 150-year anniversary in 2016. The history of Davenport is unique as it is comprised of many institutions that were ultimately merged with or purchased by Davenport. Early in this century, Davenport's three separate colleges - Davenport College, Detroit College of Business and Great Lakes Business College - were unified into one University. Alumni from all of Davenport's predecessor institutions are considered Davenport alumni with all existing and future alumni benefits available to them.

If you have any questions, please send an email to We are happy to serve.
