Calendar of Events
John Sloan Dickey served as Dartmouth College's twelfth president from 1945-1970. He is credited with having created a university within a college and a college of university caliber- a sophisticated, complex institution of higher education that maintains the centrality of the undergraduate experience while competing in the toughest academic league for students, faculty, and research funds. Dickey furthermore worked to make of Dartmouth an international crossroads for learning, instituting, among other things, the "Great Issues" courses to examine topics of international concern.
The John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding was established in February 1982 to honor President Dickey and perpetuate the international dimension of his legacy.
