Many of the Dickey Center's programs address one of our five strategic areas: environment, gender, health, human development, and security. Within this framework, we support initiatives that provide in-depth knowledge and experience in specific areas of global concern. 

The Dickey Center supports curricular programs, internships and fellowships and other co-curriculum activities, and engagement with experts in support of research initiatives for undergraduate, post-graduate, graduate students and faculty. We also support post-doctoral research fellowships and partnerships with national and international research institutes, medical facilities, universities and nonprofits. Our strategic focus allows us to offer in-depth, interdisciplinary analysis in these areas.
