Denison University is committed to nurturing ecological sustainability both on campus and in the world beyond. We recognize that environmental responsibility is a way of life, not just a trend, and that new science continually brings new opportunities for improvement, so the active commitment to nurturing sustainability will never end.
Denison’s commitment to sustainability is not just something we talk about or say that we are doing.
Environmental stewardship and social responsibility are core components of Denison’s mission and of the Denison experience. Sustainability at Denison involves the whole campus community. Through proactive policies and procedures Denison has reinforced its commitment to moving the college towards a more sustainable future.
