A brief description of the student educators program’s target audience (1st program):

The Sustainability Fellows program targets every student on campus through its educational programming and activities. Nearly all activities are open to all students on campus. At times, certain events are collaborations with other student groups and those events may limit the audience for that particular event. However, over the course of the year, students at Denison have ample opportunities to engage and be impacted by our sustainability peer-to-peer outreach.

In reality, this program targets the entire student body and campus community. However, it is realistic and fair to say that not all students engage or even see this programming which is why we are reporting a lower number ~2/3 of our student body. We don't actively take any attendance at events.
