Welcome to Carlisle, Our Global Community

The Dickinson campus radiates a diversity of ideas, worldviews, and approaches.  Students and scholars from different backgrounds and experiences come together in Carlisle to form a truly global community.  International students hailing from more than three dozen countries across six continents animate and enrich the campus conversation on issues of international importance and contribute to the life and character of our community in innumerable ways.

The College's guiding philosophy of with respect to international visitors has always been one of integration.  Dickinson strives to integrate international scholars into the campus community to the maximum extent possible; but it does so while recognizing that certain types of support are necessary and appropriate to help them manage the transition to academic and social life at the College. The International Student and Scholars section coordinates closely with a number of campus offices to ensure that international scholars have the tools they need to be successful. Enhancing the quality of the academic, cultural, and social experience of our international students and scholars is central to the mission of the Center for Global Study and Engagement.
