Denison’s Spectrum Series embodies exploration across the liberal arts. It fosters connection and collaboration among the college’s major lecture, performance, exhibition, and academic programs, pooling resources to support events around an annual theme. In doing so, Spectrum engages students in dialog and action with scholars and artists.
