Student Publications

  • Standpoints
    World Outlook Editing Session
    World Outlook editing session
    Standpoints is a magazine devoted to increasing awareness of global health issues through the written experience of Dartmouth undergraduates. Many articles stem from student experiences around the globe (following health-related internships, research, or volunteer work). Additional student-written articles round out the publication and focus on a variety of global health topics.
  • World Outlook
    World Outlook is a student-run journal of international affairs that publishes papers by Dartmouth students. The publication began 25 years ago and has remained in steady print ever since. There are many opportunities to get involved—as a writer, editor, layout manager, or designer.

Selective Membership Organizations

  • Great Issues Scholars (First-year students only)
    Each year we select a cohort of first year students to be our Great Issues Scholars. Using Dickey Research Initiatives (Global Health, War & Peace, Human Development, Gender and Arctic Studies) as a starting point, Scholars spend their first year at Dartmouth exploring some of the most vital international issues of the day. From Private lunches with faculty members and visiting speakers, to an off-campus retreat and other special events, this is a fabulous way for first year students to gain a broad understanding of international issues and resources at Dartmouth.
  • War & Peace Fellows (Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors only)
    The War & Peace Fellows program brings students together from across disciplines—the sciences, social sciences, and humanities—to engage in an ongoing discussion of the social, political, moral, and technical dimensions of international conflict and cooperation. If you care about these issues and connecting with your peers, faculty, and internationally renowned experts sounds like a good fit for you, consider applying to be a War and Peace Fellow.
