Celebrating Dickinson: Inquiry, Inclusion and Engagement

celebrating dickinson

Celebrating Dickinson engages the campus in programs and events to show recognition and appreciation of our diversity while encouraging inquiry and inclusion within our community! Dickinson College, as a community, will hold the first annual Celebrating Dickinson week from September 26 -30, 2016, with a theme of inquiry, inclusion and engagement for all members of the campus. Programs and activities planned for this week include many collaborative sessions from all divisions of the college. The week will kick-off with a Cultural and Historical Walk around the campus community on Monday morning and close with a Cultural Celebration on the John Dickinson Campus on Friday afternoon!
