Education & Research
One of our core values
Unlike many other institutions, Sustainability is not just part of an environmental studies degree. As an educational institution that holds sustainability as one of our core values, Denison seeks to incorporate sustainability into the classroom and laboratory experiences of our students. The college offers numerous sustainability-focused and sustainability-related courses.
More than 50 of our professors, representing two-thirds of our academic departments, offer more than 120 courses courses that directly include aspects of sustainability. Whether you are a studio art, religion, or chemistry major, sustainability will be a part of your academic experience at Denison. This is a good thing. Many faculty include sustainability concepts, including environmental, social, and economic sustainability, in their curricula through course topics and experiential or service learning components. An increasing number of our faculty explore threads of sustainability within their research or through independent student research projects.
