About Us

The Landis House Collective consists of five centers that offer:

  • Community
  • Engagement
  • Activism
  • Resources
  • Support

Center for Spirituality and Social Justice: The Center for Spirituality & Social Justice (formerly the Center for Service, Spirituality & Social Justice) seeks to develop a campus climate where people commit to understand, respect and appreciate others’ religious, spiritual and secular/humanist meaning-making practices.

  • Asbell Center for Jewish Life: The Asbell Center for Jewish Life draws together Jewish students from all denominations. The center sponsors events including High Holiday services, Passover Seders and other religious or cultural gatherings often in collaboration with other organizations on campus.

Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) Services: The LGBTQ Office works to create a welcoming, safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for LGBTQQIAA+ members of the Dickinson community.

Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity: The Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity (PSC) is a resource center open to the entire Dickinson community and charged with advancing Dickinson’s commitment to broadening the understanding of—and building—a pluralistic society that promotes equality and integrity on the campus, in the community, and the world.

Women’s and Gender Resource Center: The WGRC promotes and fosters gender education and equity by providing resources, sponsoring events and educational opportunities, and encouraging conversation and dialogue. Practicing an intersectional approach, the WGRC values collaboration and partnership as it works toward equity and social justice.
