In the Center for Global Study and Engagement, we strive to not only talk the talk but walk the walk. For us this means continued learning and growth as professionals, changing and influencing practice and policy within the CGSE, Dickinson and the field of international education and contributing our voices and lessons learned through conferences, workshops, presentations, and publications.

These are some examples of the latter:

Dickinson and Institute of International Education Partnership

Dickinson College and the Institute of International Education (IIE) are collaborating on an innovative, new partnership to provide much-needed training opportunities that go beyond cultural awareness education and instead reimagine an international education framework that incorporates global, intercultural and equity inclusion lenses.

In 2020 and 2021 we facilitated 3 virtual workshops Moving from Inclusivity Talk to Equity in Action with over 200 participants from 5 countries and in spring 2022 we facilitated a 3-part workshop series Building Bridges: Committing to Equity and Justice in International Education  with over 40 participants.


Intercultural Pre-Departure Orientation Workshops

Students complete a mandatory pre-departure orientaiton workshop series before going abroad. 

The Pre-Departure Orientation Workshop Series is a mandatory multi-part series for students to complete before they go abroad. This series includes both synchronous and asynchronous content. These modules have been developed within the context of the Dickinson commitment to creating an inclusive campus that fosters the development of an intercultural skill set.

Workshop Descriptions

Health, Safety, and Wellness Abroad

  • The narrative of study abroad often focuses on its transformative nature while glossing over the hard work and challenges of crossing cultures. For some students, this is work they are doing every day on our campus and, for others, this will be new. Through the lenses of health, well-being and safety, this session will help students grapple with the unknown and prepare to be uncomfortable.

Perceptions of Identity in Different Cultural Contexts

  • In this session, students will examine their own identity and awareness of self, which is key to growing their intercultural competence skills when they go abroad. Students will then explore how identity can change across different countries and cultural contexts.
