Who. What. How. Where.
The Dickinson Four is about asking the right questions at the right time. It’s about seeking out the answers rather than waiting for them to be handed to you. It’s about always asking “why” and “why not.” It’s about making the most out of your four years and understanding what’s at stake during each. Your story has many chapters before it's a life story.
The Dickinson Four is a four-year roadmap to your Dickinson experience, grounded in the mission of the college, designed to ensure that you are asking these questions with purpose, intensity, depth and support. Each year, a variety of intentionally designed signature programs—in conjunction with Dickinson’s rich offering of over 43 majors, minors and certificate programs and more than 100 student-run clubs and organizations—will foster opportunities to explore your identity, your experiences, your goals and your next steps.
The Dickinson Four was created to help students create a cohesive experience. The Dickinson Four connects Academic Advising, the Career Center, New Student Programs, Student Leadership & Campus Engagement, Residential Life, the Center for Global Study & Engagement, the center for Civic Engagement, the Center for Sustainability Education, the center for Service, Spirituality, and Social Justice, the Women's & Gender Resource Center, the Office of LGBTQ services and the offices of advancement and admissions. Together, we share a commitment to Dickinson’s institutional mission: to provide a useful education rooted in sustained inquiry, inclusive leadership and civic engagement.
