In this spring 2018 video interview with Denison President Adam Weinberg, Nic Covey ’04, president of the Alumni Society, asks President Weinberg about the college’s strategic plan to expand the curriculum, while remaining true to its liberal arts values; disrupt the old college career office model; support faculty development; elevate our programs around wellness and diversity; and raise Denison’s visibility.
You’ll hear more about Denison’s new programs in Global Commerce, Data Analytics, Health, Exercise and Sport Studies, Narrative Journalism and Financial Economics, how the college is leveraging its close connection to Columbus, the 14th-largest city in the nation, and why mentorship is so important to the success of our students.
And you’ll get great information about Denison’s extraordinary success in admission, what Denison is doing to help keep our liberal-arts education affordable for middle and working-class families; and the importance of many measures of diversity (socio-economic, cultural, racial, geographic, and political) in helping prepare our students for life in an increasingly diverse and global world.
President Weinberg also answers questions about how the campus has changed — and stayed the same; the new Red Frame Lab for design-thinking and entrepreneurship; a transformative gift for Doane Library; what’s happening with updates to our residence halls and Whisler Center for Wellness Center. (You’ll also hear about his favorite spot on the campus.)
Watch the video and learn more about how to engage with fellow alumni through Denison Connecting, help students with advice and internships, and how to help Denison in its mission to educate autonomous thinkers, discerning moral agents and active citizens of a democratic society.
