Dickinson was created to prepare young people for engaged lives of citizenship and leadership in the service of society, and we have long been intentional and proactive in our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

We believe that achievement of our academic and social goals depends on an engaged campus community enriched by diverse peoples, voices, experiences, cultures and ideas.

We encourage open dialogue on issues of intellectual, ethical and social importance to our community, the nation and the world.

We endeavor to go beyond metrics of representational diversity by fostering an environment of inclusion where every member of our community is respected, valued and empowered to ask questions, contribute ideas, challenge institutional assumptions and paradigms and revise viewpoints.

Our founders intended Dickinson graduates to use their liberal-arts education as a powerful agent of change to advance the lot of humankind. We expect no less today.


We offer either a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree in 21 disciplinary majors and 22 interdisciplinary majors. A liberal-arts education at Dickinson encourages you to look for opportunities, to connect the dots and then act with purpose.
