Make a Gift.

Swasey Chapel with a full Moon in the backgroundDenisonians everywhere can be proud of how our community has responded and persevered at a time unlike any other.

The good news. Creative vision, tireless planning, and meticulous execution allowed Denison to experience what was, by all measures, a hugely successful 2021-22 academic year.

In the fall, we welcomed students back to in-person classes on The Hill, beginning with the induction of the university’s largest first-year class in more than two decades. We also launched new majors in journalism and Earth & environmental sciences. Applications for admission increased by 28% this year (and by 150% over the last few years), and with more than 12,200 applicants for next fall’s incoming class, Denison’s admission rate dropped all the way down to 22%. In May, we conferred 554 bachelor’s degrees on our amazing graduates in the Class of 2022, and they are already making an impact in countless ways.

Steadfast financial support from faithful Denisonians like you continues to provide students with a safe and healthy environment for living and learning. That support also supplies essential assistance for students’ families still facing economic hardship brought on by the global pandemic.

We can’t stop now. As an aspirational and forward-looking institution, Denison is now planning to implement further strategic initiatives in the areas of curricular innovation, co-curricular and residential life, faculty support, and student affordability and accessibility. In addition, structural improvements to academic, social, wellness, and residential spaces continue to be made. And the university’s top-notch career launch program, already a Denison hallmark, is still burgeoning.

We can do all this, but not without your participation. Please make your gift to Denison today.

Thank you! We are sincerely grateful for your loyalty and generosity in support of Denison’s students and faculty.
