Denison is home to diversity writ large; students who find their home here are of different socioeconomic backgrounds, races, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, sexual orientations, political bents, and gender identities. For the benefits of diversity to manifest, inclusiveness and equity must be present on our campus as well.
Learning, in the classroom, from faculty and peer mentors, through service, and from being exposed to different points of view, is the cornerstone of a liberal arts education. Diversity of thought, culture and experience is the lifeblood of creativity and knowledge-building. Diversity, with its partners, inclusiveness and equity, fosters new ideas and brings to light different perspectives on old issues, providing stronger analysis and answers to problems.
