The Annual Fund impacts every student and professor, every day. It is the vital resource that helps to create the momentum that makes Denison a remarkable place to learn. Unrestricted support infuses Denison with resources for day-to-day expenses as well as emerging needs and opportunities.


Innovative New Majors

Denison is developing new majors and concentrations that provide students the opportunity to focus on in-demand areas like global commerce, data analytics, financial economics, narrative nonfiction, and health sciences through a liberal arts lens.
