Denison University strives to be an exemplary steward of our natural world and a leader in sustainability. We take an intentionally multi-disciplinary approach to sustainability that balances environmental, economic and social responsibility. We believe that our approach to sustainability will support the well being of the college and the global community beyond. Our commitment to sustainability runs deep. Academic research, strategic investments in infrastructure and human resources, student-centered programming, plus community partnerships are central to our efforts. Whether in the classroom, the Licking County community or a country halfway around the globe, Denison students, staff and faculty lead by example. Together, we share a vision of a healthy future where people and the planet thrive.
