D-phi is a center for public humanities sponsored by MSU Denver. We create programs designed to reframe our perspectives, challenge our  assumptions, and stimulate dialogue about human thought, history,  science, art and culture.

We organize roundtable discussions, art exhibits, film screenings,  theatrical performances, and lectures centered on major themes, issues, or questions of abiding human concern. We host both local and international scholars, artists, and some of the 'greatest minds of our  time.'

We've hosted over 30 unique events for over 5000 individuals, including everything from public performances and talk-backs with Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, to a performance of and discussion on Ben Nichols' alt-rock album based on the novel Blood Meridian, to a Q&A with Noam Chomsky.
