Human Development encompasses many issues including the challenges of good governance, human rights and security, health equity, education access, job creation, environmental pollution, and more. The Dickey Center supports students and faculty working in diverse fields as they seek solutions to the complex problems underlying global poverty and other forms of deprivation in low-income countries.

Many of Dartmouth's faculty and students—not to mention alumni—are actively working in human development initiatives across the globe. Dartmouth’s faculty includes numerous development practitioners in the departments of Anthropology, Engineering, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, and Sociology, among others. The Dickey Center supports faculty research in evidence-based research and fosters connections between faculty and students with global networks and policymakers.
