Our Work

Our work at The Institute of Arctic Studies encompasses research in Greenland, undergraduate and graduate courses, research fellowships, science communication and outreach activities, and a network of national and international partnerships. Thanks to a major National Science Foundation IGERT grant awarded to the Dickey Center in 2008, we have been able to expand our support for work in the polar science, engineering, and the human dimensions of environmental change. 


Students and faculty affiliated with the Institute of Arctic Studies are involved in research that has serious implications for Greenland and the circumpolar north, and Antarctica. 

Environmental Courses

We support two Environmental Studies courses that look at polar regions and the science & policy of rapid environmental change. 

National & International Partners

We work with many national and international organizations on scientific research, policy development, conferences and workshops, and environmental network development. We also support Dartmouth student and faculty exchanges with partner institutions. 

Student Organizations

The Dartmouth Student Council on Climate Change (DC3) is a student organization that focuses on current international issues related to climate change. They initiate projects to increase awareness of these issues within the Dartmouth community.
