Longtime DU Professor, Author of Quarterly Colorado Rent Surveys, Dies
Professor Gordon Von Stroh began teaching at DU in 1967

The University of Denver announced today the passing of deeply respected and beloved management professor Gordon Von Stroh, well known in Colorado for his quarterly apartment Vacancy & Rent Surveys produced for the Apartment Association of Metro Denver and the Colorado Division of Housing. He was 69.

Von Stroh began his apartment market analysis in 1981. For more than 30 years he produced reports that were used by apartment owners, government, developers, analysts and reporters.

Von Stroh joined the University as a professor of administration in 1967. He also was a longtime leader of DU’s Commencement committee, preparing each year to usher new graduates across the stage and into the DU alumni community. He was director of the MBA-customized program and the master’s of management program in the Daniels College.

In recognition of his outstanding service to the University of Denver, the community, and the professorial profession, Von Stroh received the first Faculty Service Award at DU’s Convocation in October 2009. He was beloved by students, faculty, staff and alumni at the Daniels College of Business.

“Throughout Gordon Von Stroh’s 45 years of service at Daniels, he was a role model for achieving public good,” said Daniels Dean Christine Riordan. “We will miss his wit, his wisdom and his great gift of student connection. Gordon and his family will continue to be a source of inspiration to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and corporate leaders around the globe.”

Information about the memorial services will be forthcoming.
