The John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding has launched ‘Round the Girdled Earth, a series of interactive online events inviting students, alumni, and all other Dartmouth community members to virtually experience cultures around the world.

“We are connecting with our colleagues across Dartmouth to create programs and activities for all of the Dartmouth community to learn, to have fun, and most importantly to connect with each other, no matter where ‘ ‘round the girdled Earth’ we are,” says Christianne Hardy, the Dickey Center’s interim director.

Over the course of the year, a series of two-month-long “stops” will be devoted to different parts of the world, each offering ways for people to participate in collaboration with departments and programs across Dartmouth.

All programs will be free. Events will range from presentations and discussions on current affairs to social and cultural opportunities for connecting participants, such as global cafe “meet ups” with Dartmouth alumni and alumni chapter groups, and interactive food and cultural events.

No registration is needed. To participate, visit the ‘Round the Girdled Earth website, where a schedule of events is available.

The program is supported by the Class of 1957 and the Class of 1982 through their Great Issues Innovations Fund.
