'Round the Girdled Earth

Join the Dickey Center for International Understanding and campus partners as we take the year to travel 'round the girdled earth—making stops in various regions of the world to learn about current affairs, explore aspects of various cultures, and build community amongst Dartmouth's global community!

About the Program

Events are free and open to all members of the Dartmouth community.
