Dickinsonians never brag. Humility is one of our core values.
Our founder, after all, named the college after his friend and Founding Father, John Dickinson, rather than himself. Otherwise, we’d all be Rushians—which doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as well.
So when you refrain from bragging to friends and coworkers about your alma mater, these are just some of the things you might not mention:
Engagement Scholarship Consortium
Dickinson became the first liberal-arts college to join the Engagement Scholarship Consortium, which promotes research on and study of the impacts of community-campus partnerships, educates the public on eective programs for community change and conducts national and international meetings, workshops, institutes, symposia and conferences to discuss future goals and challenges of moving initiatives forward.
No. 4 Baccalaureate Institution
Dickinson was named the No. 4 baccalaureate institution in the country for sustainability performance, according to the 2016 Sustainable Campus Index, published by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. Find out more about sustainability at Dickinson.
