Impact & Initiatives

Innovative Academics
Denison is a leader in curricular innovation, continuing to add majors and concentrations in finance, commerce, health, and communications, while providing health and safety modifications to learning and teaching spaces for in-person learning. Gifts to the Annual Fund help cover the costs of these inspired additions.
The record number of donors who supported Denison’s annual fund last year. The continued generosity of the Denison family enables the university to provide a world-class education while responding nimbly to unforeseen impacts to university operations.
30% of Denison students play varsity, club, or intramural sports, and the university’s commitment to its athletes shows on the field. The Big Red have won a record number of NCAC All-Sports Championships, and most of Denison’s 26 varsity teams are perennial title contenders.
Denison has always prioritized student physical and mental health, but in today’s complex world, the university has further elevated its holistic and powerful approach to student wellness. Wellness programs and staff are supported by gifts to the Annual Fund, and Denison students are benefitting from that support in significant ways every day.
Affordability & Accessibility
Vital scholarships are, in part, funded by gifts from loyal and compassionate Denison alumni, family, and friends. Denison proudly meets the full demonstrated financial need of students. We are committed to making a Denison education accessible to all admitted students.
Student Success
Students learn to combine their academic knowledge, values, and habits with career-oriented skills, networks, and experiences needed to be the architect of their own lives starting from the moment they step foot on campus their first year. The results speak for themselves with 99% of alumni currently employed or in graduate school.
