About Building Community

The Building Community initiative celebrates the diversity of the Dickinson College community by highlighting national commemorations, celebrations, and awareness campaigns that will allow us to learn more about the backgrounds, faiths, cultures, and challenges of the individuals in our community. 

This resource guide provides a selection of books, films, and other information related to the Building Community monthly themes. This information is intended to raise awareness and inform discussion on campus.
