What is the DVD Program?
The Economics Department at Denison University is proud to announce the launch of its new community service initiative: The Denison Volunteer Dollar – The Currency of Civic Engagement. Denison University is once again gearing up its civic engagement initiative by launching a new era of academic and intellectual partnership with the surrounding community! The Denison Volunteer Dollar (DVD) program will invite economics students to engage in volunteer work with non-profit organizations around the Denison community!
Community service can be performed on an individual basis or in large groups during a community service day organized once a semester on a Saturday morning for large groups of students to participate in a single, collective project serving the community. Buses will transport the students for a few hours of fun, enriching community service!
The DVD administration reserves the right to determine the legitimacy of community service work.
