Dickinson has made the decision to move classes online for the rest of the semester. The campus is not open to visitors until further notice.
The Dickinson community has responded enthusiastically to the Revolutionary Challenge with 49 proposals ranging from an interdisciplinary data analytics initiative to a comprehensive student leadership program.
“I launched the Revolutionary Challenge this spring with the goal of tapping the expertise, energy and innovative spirit of the Dickinson community to help find the best ideas for continuing and sustaining this college’s revolutionary mission,” said Dickinson President Margee Ensign. “The Dickinson community responded loudly with bold new initiatives for using this liberal-arts education for the betterment of the world.”
The challenge’s proposal submission phase ended on Friday, Oct. 4. From Oct. 7 through Oct. 15, the college is emailing alumni, parents, faculty, staff and students to ask them to help chose the finalists by selecting the proposals they think should move forward and providing additional comments if necessary. Members of the Dickinson community should watch their inboxes for emails with a personalized link to offer their input.
At the end of this community review and comment period, the President’s Panel on Innovation and the Board of Trustees will use this feedback as they select the Revolutionary Challenge finalists, which will be announced later this month.
