Stay Connected to our Efforts
Denison has a long tradition of being proactive and environmentally responsible. The signing of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment in 2010, along with the formation of a Campus Sustainability Committee and the hiring of a Sustainability Coordinator have moved Denison further down the path towards environmental sustainability.
You are encouraged to follow our sustainability initiatives and engage our students, staff, and faculty as we work together to make Denison a leader among small liberal arts colleges.
