Dickinson College is committed to advancing among the general public a practical appreciation and support of liberal education not only for the College, itself, but also for all liberal arts institutions.
Liberal education and the institutions that embrace it were envisioned by our nation's founding fathers as the most efficient and useful approach to education, an education necessary to establish and advance America's distinctive form of government and the qualities of a democratic society.
As such, a liberal education has served, and continues to serve, as an invaluable material asset to our nation.
Dickinson College continues to commit itself to advancing this larger conception of a liberal education, a conception without which the United States of America loses its original and enduring distinction.
Dickinson today remains committed to a revolutionary course of study that pursues, in close cooperation with its students, new knowledge and promotes generous connections across disciplines that yield progressive insights and emerging innovation that would not occur within the confinement of strictly defined academic disciplines.
A Dickinson liberal education offers students the opportunity to completely and passionately engage in the pursuit of knowledge, talent and character for a noble purpose- to be useful through leadership and high accomplishment, and through citizenship, to advance a just, compassionate democratic system of government and the manners and society appropriate to it.
