Family Leadership Council: supporting Denison's strategic initiatives through philanthropy and engagement

Family Leadership Council Executive Committee:

  • Jennifer Wythes Vettel P'19, Philanthropy
  • Susan Cole Callahan '87 P19, Philanthropy

The Family Leadership Council's goal is to build a strong and engaged connection between parents, their personal philanthropy and campus programs that impact students' campus experiences. Members serve as informed advocates and liaisons, encouraging parent involvement as professional resources and engaged members of the community. For more information contact Susan Leithauser (740-587-5547).

Host an event

Every year special events are hosted for the Denison family in regional areas around the world. From regional prospective student events to welcoming Denison interns to your city, these events provide opportunities to connect with Denisonians beyond the Hill. If you are interested in learning more about hosting an event for Denison, please complete the Family Volunteer Form and we will be in touch.

Regional Denison events are open to all Denisonians – alumni (with or without a Denison diploma), family members of current and former students, current and former faculty members, and friends of the college. We hope you will attend an event in your local area

Make a Gift

More than 90 percent of our students receive some form of financial assistance, supported in part by the Parents Fund. Without our extended family, many would never realize their dream of a world-class liberal arts education.
