At Denison, principles of human dignity and ethical integrity are paramount, and the residential character of the campus engages the full student body in a shared enterprise.
Each member of the community possesses a full range of rights and responsibilities. Foremost among these is a commitment to treat each other and the environment with mutual respect, tolerance, and civility.
Denison's students bring diverse talents, interests, backgrounds, and experiences. Their learning takes place outside of the classroom, as well as within, by sharing, questioning, and growing together.
Opportunities to participate in co-curricular activities are everywhere—arts, athletics, recreation, service to others beyond the campus, student organizations, and campus governance. The focus of student life at Denison is a concern for the whole person.
