Denise Bennett grew up in Grinnell, Iowa. Denise attended Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny for her AAS, as well as Marshalltown Community College for an AA in general studies. She also attended Buena Vista University for her BA in Management Information Systems. In her free time, Denise likes to spend time with her family and pets, watch television, craft, bake, and she especially likes spoiling her grandsons.
The best part of Grinnell College, according to Denise, is that she “can work in her hometown, in an interesting position with good benefits, and have access to a great variety of cultures, talents, and opportunities that she wouldn’t normally have free access to in her life.”
Denise’s main areas of responsibility include dispatching Campus Safety Officers to campus incidents/requests; maintaining statistics for the office, distributing campus/Enterprise vehicles, managing student Campus Safety employees, as well as the logging and charging for parking tickets, permits, and appeals.
The department of Campus Safety, 641-269-4600, plans and implements safety and security operations and programs and initiatives in support of the College’s mission and vision. Located on the corner of East Street and 10th Avenue, Campus Safety is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even when school is not in session.
