Dickinson College is a member of The South Mountain Partnership, a unified group of private citizens, business, not for profit organizations and governmental officials working to protect, preserve and enhance the South Mountain Landscape in Central Pennsylvania through inventory and prioritization of natural and cultural assets for the preservation, promotion, and development of those resources. The South Mountain Partnership advocates for natural and heritage assets, agriculture, and recreation and showcase organizations and businesses that are supporting them in the region
Dickinson partners with the downtown organizations and stakeholders to plan, research, and advocate for healthy economic revitalization and safe, sustainable transportation initiatives. Dickinson College funded the “Road Diet” study which led to funding for alternative transportation support including traffic calming and redirection improvements, increased pedestrian safety measures, and the incorporation of bicycle lanes along the main throughways of the town.
