Urban Sustainable Agriculture in Cuba
Dickinson has sponsored several research trips to Cuba, with a focus on political, economic and environmental factors, as well as the island nation's social sustainability.
One face of the Steelton Mosaic
During the Steelton Mosaic (1996, 2001), students and faculty met with residents and workers of Steelton, Pa., to explore questions such as how to raise a family, earn a living and
sustain faith in a community hit hard by de-industrialization.
This mosaic provided Dickinson students both the historical background and a hands-on exposure to a variety of issues, including participatory democracy, endogenous development, regional integration and sustainable agriculture.
