Director, John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding
Dartmouth seeks a forward-looking, strategic leader to serve as the Director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding. Reporting directly to the Provost, the Director will provide bold and visionary leadership to enhance the Center’s national and international reputation and to foster inclusiveness and diversity.
Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is a member of the Ivy League and consistently ranks among the world’s greatest academic institutions. Dartmouth has forged a singular identity for combining its deep commitment to outstanding undergraduate liberal arts and graduate education with distinguished research and scholarship in the Arts and Sciences and its four leading graduate schools – the Geisel School of Medicine, the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, Thayer School of Engineering, and the Tuck School of Business.
An international perspective is an integral part of every aspect of the Dartmouth education, and it is the mission of the Dickey Center to enhance, coordinate, and sustain this global approach to learning. Founded in 1982 by former students of Dartmouth’s 12th president (1945-1970), the Dickey Center for International Understanding is the living legacy of John Sloan Dickey. The Dickey Center works across Dartmouth schools, departments, and programs to ensure that students become the engaged citizenry the world needs to confront global problems.
Through symposia, conferences, public events, a postdoctoral fellows program, and extended visits by practitioners and scholars, the Center brings the vital issues of the day to campus. It enhances the intellectual life of the faculty through its support of faculty research and publications, and it brings new opportunities to students through international studies. The Center provides an array of collaborative programs and events related to international affairs, supports 80 student internships, assists with research grants, provides opportunities to join student organizations and publications focused on foreign affairs, and oversees a minor in international studies and a certificate in global health.
Many of the Dickey Center’s programs address one of five pillars or strategic areas: environment, gender, health, human development, and security. Within this framework, the Center supports initiatives that provide in-depth knowledge and experience in specific areas of global concern, including the following: War and Peace Studies Program; Institute of Arctic Studies; Human Development Initiative; Global Health Initiative; International Studies Minor; and Gender Issues.
Through the Distinguished Visiting Fellows Program, the Dickey Center brings many national and international scholars and public figures to campus to address pressing international issues. In addition, Dickey has held multiple major conferences, partnering with organizations such as the U.S. Holocaust Museum and Memorial. A substantial endowment of $69 million supports the activities of the Dickey Center.
Dartmouth seeks a thought leader with a strong international affairs background and exceptional leadership and management skills. The next Director must have a passion for undergraduate education, a genuine desire to connect with and mentor students, and an appreciation for and interest in faculty research. The ideal candidate will have both administrative experience and strategic planning experience and will be well-connected to leaders with senior and mid-level policy experience. A Ph.D. or other relevant advanced degree is preferred.
