Dartmouth College. John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding
The Dickey Center for International Understanding was established in 1982 and dedicated to the memory and values of Dartmouth College President John Sloan Dickey (1907-1991). He welcomed entering students at Convocation with the charge, "Your business here is learning."
The Dickey Center unites the many and diverse strengths of Dartmouth College - its students, faculty, professional staff, undergraduate and graduate schools - in addressing the world's challenges and creating global citizens as well as next generation leaders. Their work is defined by the scope of international issues they address and by the way in which they do it: through excellence in education, research, leadership training, and the building of trusted partnerships around the world. We engage students through interdisciplinary studies across the sciences and humanities. We host global policy practitioners and scholars. The institute fosters deep respect for diverse viewpoints, cultures, and paths to knowledge.
