The Dickey Center for International Understanding unites the many and diverse strengths of Dartmouth College – its students, faculty, and undergraduate and graduate schools – in addressing the world’s challenges. We are defined not only by the scope of the issues we address, but the way in which we do it – through collaboration, innovation, interdisciplinary study and respect for the diversity of viewpoints.
Dartmouth’s students are tomorrow’s global leaders, and we seek to instill in them the legacy of John Sloan Dickey - an understanding of the world’s troubles and a commitment to do something about them.
Working with Dartmouth’s stellar faculty, we aim to produce the best understanding and analysis of international issues with collaborative, multidisciplinary research on such complex problems as global climate change, world health crises, and war and conflict resolution.
In bringing together the talents and resources of Dartmouth’s professional schools with those of the College of Arts and Sciences, we seek to be the force that unites the university in Dartmouth College in the development of new understanding, knowledge and solutions to world problems.
