Denison University is committed to making all aspects of the institution—inside the classroom and out—a community characterized by honesty, integrity, and responsibility. That commitment was reaffirmed when Denison students developed and proposed the Code of Academic Integrity, which the faculty adopted unanimously in 2008.

Denison University is dedicated to student learning and to the development of ethically responsible persons who contribute to the development of strong communities, including on our own campus. Inherent in this is the requirement that community members act not merely in response to their individual inclination, but also in accordance with shared values and principles.

This letter addresses the responsibilities that educational institutions have to respond to sexual harassment and sexual violence cases. Below is the direct link to the "Dear Colleague" letter pdf document for reference:

Through our Campus Compact, members of the Denison University community promise to respect one another and our environment. The University protects the rights of all students to live and study in an environment free from sexual coercion and violence.
