The John Dickinson Society (JDS) celebrates the more than 900 philanthropic leaders within our Dickinson community. This year has brought many opportunities for these alumni, parents and friends to learn, engage and connect with each other and the wider Dickinson community.

In Philadelphia, JDS members enjoyed lunch at the Barnes Foundation with Associate Professor of Art History Elizabeth Lee. In Chicago, members gathered for a private tour of East Asian art at the Art Institute of Chicago with Wei Ren, assistant professor of art & art history and Tamar and Emil ’53 Weiss Chair in Asian Art.
