About Us

Davenport’s efficient, career-centered focus is what sets our in-person and online bachelor’s degree programs, graduate degree programs, professional development and certifications apart from any other university in Michigan. Plus, Davenport’s “Excellence System” prepares students with real-world competencies sought by top employers, such as communication, teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving, as well as program-specific competencies.

Recognized for excellence
Davenport was the first university to be selected for a 2020 Michigan Performance Excellence Award. This distinction is the highest honor Michigan Performance Excellence (MIPEx) gives to Michigan organizations that demonstrate outstanding performance, leadership and operational excellence.

Davenport earned national notoriety in June 2021 and became the first university in Michigan to earn the ACE/Fidelity Investments Award for Institutional Transformation. This prestigious award recognizes colleges or universities that, in a period of great change in higher education, have responded to challenges in innovative and creative ways that allow the institution to thrive.

Trailblazer in online learning
As Michigan’s first online learning community, we’re a leader among online colleges in Michigan. For more than 20 years, we’ve been perfecting online education.
