ALLARM collaborates in the Dickinson College campus to enrich student experiences with community-based environmental opportunities, build connections in our campus network, and further the work of our students and organization. Please email us or stop by our offices in Kaufman if you are interested in collaborating!

Collaborative Opportunities

ALLARM works to deliver a variety of community-based environmental learning opportunities. Here are some of the ways we work with the campus community:


On average ALLARM presents to 12 classes each year, ranging from anthropology to economics. ALLARM can provide readings and create a presentation tailored to meet your needs and desired topic.


In the past we helped with impromptu labs examining elevated conductivity from road salt in Carlisle, but we are happy to brainstorm!

Field Trips

We have a number of community and agency contacts, and are happy to help facilitate field trips. In the past, we have helped organize trips to areas with active extractive industries to tours of local water management facilities.

Guest Speakers

Our network of community and environmental advocates in Pennsylvania is extensive, and we are more than happy to connect you with outside guest speakers in our field.

Service Learning

We collaborate with faculty members and campus groups to coordinate service learning projects for students.
