At its core, Denison is an academic community, whose mission it is to inspire and educate incredibly talented, motivated, and committed students to become autonomous thinkers, discerning moral agents, and engaged citizens who are uniquely prepared to lead lives of personal, professional, and civic success. We do this well because this is a community of connections and relationships that lead to a remarkable amount of mentorship. Through that mentorship, we push and prod each other to find our more intellectually aware and better selves.
