As of 2020, Dickinson has just under 800 full-time employees - administrators, faculty and staff - and its 144-acre campus is populated by students from 38 U.S. states and territories and 49 foreign countries.

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. Foun...ded 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 Hershey Park 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.
