The Residential Communities unit of Student Development is focused on the cultivation of community in residence halls, with leadership development, civic engagement, creative problem solving and the embrace of diversity as core values.
We learn by doing, trial and error, failure and triumph. Residential communities are a laboratory for life. Denison’s approach to residential life very intentionally creates memorable moments. The college recognizes that students are always learning — in the classrooms, during activities, and even in their dining halls and rooms, as they hold conversations, build friendships, and gain an understanding of what the world looks like from another point of view.
Students and Residential Communities staff work to build authentic communities that encompass a wide range of perspectives and needs. Students have autonomy and responsibility, as well as support in that process. We learn by doing, trial and error, failure and triumph. Residential communities are a laboratory for life.
Residential spaces that are fun and interesting anchor a student’s education. These are places where students feel valued and respected, and where residents feel a sense of ownership and investment in their environment and what happens there.
