Issues and Action
With input from community partners and Denison faculty and students, the Center has identified five community issues where service by Denison classes and student organizations may make a meaningful impact. The Center will focus new efforts on one of these each year, in a five-year repeating cycle, while sustaining engagements developed in prior years. The five focal areas are Housing; Literacy, Education and College Access; Health and Wellness; Community Empowerment; Civic Engagement ; and Community Development.
Each link below will direct you on the issues in our local community, examples of the ways Denison University students, faculty, and staff are engaging these issues, and resources we find helpful in understanding these issues.
