Dickinson College is a highly selective four-year, independent liberal arts college with 2300 students. Dickinson prides itself on having dynamic faculty who combine excellent teaching and research. The College is located in Carlisle, PA. Carlisle is 20 minutes west of Harrisburg and a two-hour drive from Baltimore, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. Dickinson College is committed to building a representative and diverse faculty, administrative staff, and student body. We encourage applications from all qualified persons.


Known for its innovative curriculum, Dickinson is a highly selective, private liberal-arts college. One of the nation's oldest colleges, and named in honor of a signer of the U.S. Constitution, Dickinson became the first college chartered in the newly recognized United States in September 1783.
As of 2015, Dickinson has just over 800 full-time employees - administrators, faculty and staff - and its 104-acre campus is populated by students from 42 U.S. states and territories and 44 foreign countries. More than half of students study abroad through the school's 35 programs in 25 countries on six continents, mainly in noncapital cities.
Dickinson is known for its sustainability initiatives and is continually recognized by such groups as the Princeton Review (Green Honor Roll), the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE; Gold rating) and Sierra magazine ("Cool School" and one of America's greenest colleges).
Dickinson's stunning campus - featuring beautiful landscaping and buildings made of limestone from Dickinson's own quarry - is located in the heart of the historic central Pennsylvania town of Carlisle, a key marker in Civil War activity. Founded in 1751, Carlisle is a cosmopolitan town of 20,000 people, nestled between mountains that have long been a destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The Appalachian Trail and several mountain lakes are within easy reach of the campus, as is Hersheypark and historic Gettysburg.


The town is a transportation hub linked by highway, rail and air to prominent East Coast cities, with driving times that make these cities readily accessible: Harrisburg, 20 minutes; Gettysburg, 30 minutes; Baltimore, 90 minutes; Washington, D.C., two hours; Philadelphia, two hours; New York, three hours; Pittsburgh, four hours.
Dickinson takes pride in its campus wellness and professional development programs, offering an array of opportunities to faculty and staff through its Holistic Health Incentive program. In 2014, the American Heart Association (AHA) recognized Dickinson as a gold-level Fit-Friendly Worksite, a national award that acknowledges the college's commitment to a vibrant wellness culture on campus.
Dickinson offers a competitive benefits package and retirement plan, plus tuition remission and tuition assistance incentives.
The college is committed to building a representative and diverse faculty, administrative staff and student body. We encourage applications from all qualified persons.
