Dialogue with Denison
We are committed to making our hill a home where students from underrepresented backgrounds can thrive. We would like to engage with you in a conversation about diversity and the multicultural student experience during our Dialogue with Denison program.
Our Diversity Program Experience
Dialogue with Denison (DWD) is a program where a select group of prospective high school seniors will get an all expenses paid trip to visit Denison’s campus. While visiting, they will discuss important topics with Denison student leaders, learn about our academic programs, explore multicultural student life, see our organizational spaces, and hear from multicultural alumni. It ultimately gives prospective students a chance to connect with each other, learn more about Denison, and explore multicultural student life on a predominantly white campus.
As we continue to monitor health and safety guidelines due to COVID-19, our plan is to host our 2021 Fall Dialogue with Denison fly-in program in person and on campus November 6-8, 2021. If selected to participate, you will be required to be vaccinated in order to stay overnight on campus.

Dialogue with Denison FAQ

Academically strong high school seniors from underrepresented populations who are U.S. citizens and attend high school in the United States.
Yes, DWD helps students learn more about Denison and multicultural student life on campus, while providing the foundation to build connections with Denison students and high school seniors from across the country. Additionally, DWD is a selective program, and historically the students who have participated in the program have had a higher rate of admission than the general applicant pool. That does not mean that those who are not selected for DWD will be at a disadvantage in the admissions process, but rather those who are selected and choose to join DWD will be very competitive applicants.
The application deadline for DWD is September 17th, and all students who applied will hear back from us on October 1, 2021.
