The cultural fabric of Denison provides myriad experiences that enable students to not only learn more about each other, but to also learn more about themselves as individuals and as members of a global society. The Center for Cross-Cultural Engagement, comprised of the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and the Office of International Student Services, assumes an active role in helping students find ways to connect.
Sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, Paving the Way encourages all entering students to participate in this program, although its primary focus is to assist traditionally under-represented student populations in transitioning to the academic, cultural, and social climate at Denison University.
This program, in its 16th year, traditionally begins three days before August Orientation and extends throughout the academic year. Sessions address academic success, ethnic and cultural identities, personal development and an exploration of resources to build stronger relationships with Denison University.
