Dickinson is committed to collaboration, responsiveness and transparency in all operations.
Faculty, staff, students and alumni all play significant roles in the college’s governance. All college constituents provide input through a comprehensive committee structure and through open-planning sessions that help the Board of Trustees, the college president and the president’s staff develop the college’s strategic plan, operational budget and numerous policies.
The president's staff is made up of vice presidents, who lead the college's divisions; the provost; the chief of staff; and general counsel. President's staff members manage their respective divisions and collaborate with the president and the Board of Trustees to implement the college's strategic plan.
