When we look beyond our known world, we learn. Seeking out differing world views, beliefs and cultures compels us to think, grow and discover the unexplored elements of ourselves. Dickinson College fosters a community that thrives on the collegial exchange of differing opinions. Dickinson promotes individual expression and encourages the celebration of disparate backgrounds and experiences. Dickinson is committed to bringing the world to campus and to Carlisle. But it’s the students—their beliefs, ideals and passions—who explore diversity by connecting to each other, discovering the ways of the world and engaging in study and discourse.
Diversity is more than a concept used to describe life at Dickinson.
