Benjamin Franklin's American Philosophical Society of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania House of Representatives collaborated to create the University of Pennsylvania, whose stated purpose was to make advancements in agriculture, science and medicine available to the public.

Today, there are urgent, compelling educational and financial reasons to accelerate development of public-private partnerships among universities and their communities.
The definition of evolution can be summed up in a single, pithy phrase from the 2012 film Moneyball—Adapt or Die. The 21st century is throwing challenges at institutions of higher education at an accelerating pace, and if we can't find ways to adapt, we will be forced to shut our doors.

Discover how MSU Denver has always been a bit out-of-the-box, taking the essence of its entrepreneurial spirit, couple it with the adapt or die statement, and embed in our culture through public-private partnerships with entities such as Lockheed Martin, Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) Denver and more.
