Denison has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to wellness.

During the past decade, we have:

  • Partnered with the OSU/Wexner Medical Center to enhance the health care services offered on Denison’s fully residential campus.
  • Expanded our vision for wellness, added staffing resources to meet the changing health needs of students.
  • Partnered with the JED Foundation to develop a plan for supporting student mental health.
  • Built a robust financial wellness program to support students’ economic well-being. Given this ongoing commitment to wellness, Denison was recognized as an Active Minds Healthy Campus Award winner in 2020.

In spring 2022, a committee of faculty, staff, and students drafted a cross-institutional strategy for well-being to guide our work over the next several years. This collective work demonstrates Denison’s whole-campus approach and commitment to wellness.
