Roughly seventy percent of Dickinson students who study abroad participate in Dickinson Programs. Moreover, more than forty percent of the Dickinson faculty have led or taught on a Dickinson Program. Typically, Dickinson faculty teach one or two courses on Dickinson Programs, with remainder of the courses taught by faculty at our partner institutions. In the instances in which Dickinson Programs are led by an in-country director appointed by the College rather than by our faculty (e.g., Cameroon), the in-country director makes regular visits to campus so that students get to know the director, their work, and the opportunities that exist at the center they lead. There is a Dickinson faculty advisor on campus for every Dickinson Program. The faculty advisor works closely with students, offering them individual guidance on course selection at the Dickinson Program. In addition, faculty from our partner institutions regularly teach and lecture on visiting stays at Dickinson, increasing students’ familiarity with what is available at the Dickinson Programs. Accordingly, it’s not just the presence of Dickinson faculty at a global center that makes a program a Dickinson Program; it’s the closeness of the overall academic relationship, in all its many dimensions, between Dickinson and its partners.
