The Revolutionary Challenge

The President’s Panel on Innovation (PPI) and the Board of Trustees have endorsed the broad concept of each of the four Revolutionary Challenge finalists’ proposals. Two finalists, the Data Science Initiative and the Food, Agriculture & Resource Management (FARM) Lab were fully endorsed, and the college will begin seeking funding for both. Two others, FutureLab and Developing Leaders for 21st-Century Revolutionary Challenges were endorsed pending further refinement, following which the college will work to identify external fundraising support for these as well.

The Revolutionary Challenge has been a yearlong, high-level idea competition to generate new initiatives for harnessing the college's useful liberal-arts education for the greater good. Thank you to the alumni, parents, faculty and staff who submitted 49 qualifying proposals, and to the more than 3,500 Dickinsonians who provided feedback on those proposals.

THE REVOLUTIONARY CHALLENGE HAS TRULY BEEN A COMMUNITY-WIDE EFFORT. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR MAKING YOUR VOICE HEARD.
