First-Year Program | Orientation Programs | Sustainability

Denison Sustainable Farming Orientation offers an opportunity to work on projects such as harvesting, preserving (canning, drying, freezing), repairing and building trails, and managing farm animals, and forming bonds and friendships. It allows for up to 18 members of the incoming class and 3 to 5 faculty/staff leaders to practice sustainable farming by living and working on the The Flying J Farm, a sustainable farm located 20 minutes from Denison.

Sustainability

Denison is committed to reducing its impact on the environment. To that end, Denison operates an extensive campus recycling program to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and to utilize resources in a more responsible manner.  We recognize, however, that recycling is only one part of the issue. To move toward a more sustainable campus, Denison also must strive to reduce its consumption and waste in all aspects of campus operations.

Sustainability

Sustainability-focused courses at Denison University explore relationships between humans and the environment. Working from a variety of perspectives, these courses explore and analyze at least two types of systems (i.e. cultural, social, economic, political, and/or ecological) and their ability to meet the needs of future generations. These courses purposefully connect actions with outcomes in their relation to environmental issues.
