The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center and the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding unite Dartmouth’s many strengths to address domestic issues and international challenges. Collaboration, innovation, interdisciplinary study, and respect for the diversity of viewpoints are the hallmarks of each center’s approach. Both centers are acclaimed for what they do and they’re distinguished by how they do it.

This summer, we are thrilled to offer a specialized immersive campus visit day for prospective students interested in domestic policy and international affairs. Join us on Friday, July 13, 2018, for a Domestic Policy and International Affairs Open House hosted by the Dartmouth College Office of Admissions.

In keeping with Dartmouth’s small, close-knit community, attendance at this special program will be kept low to ensure each participant has a hands-on experience. Sign up early, registration is required.

During this unique visit you will

  • Hear from Dartmouth’s scholars who teach: faculty who are leaders in their fields, experts in the news, and mentors in our classrooms.
  • Participate in breakout sessions that illustrate how Dartmouth students learn to apply what they’re learning to make an impact on their communities and the larger world.
  • Enjoy lunch at Dartmouth’s Class of 1953 Commons and speak with faculty, staff, and students about the way the study of domestic policy and international affairs can shape both a Dartmouth education and a fulfilling professional and personal life afterwards.
  • Round out your day with a campus tour and optional Q&A with our Admissions and Financial Aid Staff.

As many of the day’s events will take place all across campus, we encourage you to wear clothing and shoes that would be appropriate for a walking tour of campus.
