Fall 2014 Theme

This fall, One College One Community kicked off with conversations around Chasing Ice, a documentary by James Balog, recipient of the 2014 Sam Rose ’58 and Julie Walters Prize at Dickinson College for Global Environmental Activism.

During the fall semester, we brought the conversation to you during Homecoming & Family Weekend, a live stream and interactive discussion and regional events with faculty and students.
