Conferences

About our Programming

Throughout the year, the Dickey Center hosts conferences, workshops, and special initiatives that bring nationally and internationally-recognized experts and programs to Dartmouth. These programs provide insight into specific topical areas and enable the larger campus community to experience, first-hand, a wide range of current issues and the challenges associated with them. 

The Dickey Center has sponsored, or co-sponsored, workshops focused on early warnings to help prevent genocide (with the Holocaust Museum and Neukom Institute); the Arctic (with the Carnegie Endowment); Israeli entrepreneurship and others.
