Welcome to Dickinson! Members of our admissions team understand that retrieving the information you need to help your students from college Web sites often can be difficult and time consuming. We hope that you find the information here useful, convenient and timely.
We also hope that you will discover the character and personality of Dickinson as well as what makes us unique. A distinctively Dickinson liberal-arts education prepares bright, aspiring young people to commit to lives of substantive contribution in all fields of endeavor necessary to advance a globally engaged democracy. These fields include law, medicine and health services, scientific research, the arts, business and finance, public service, education, community service, military, science and religion.
