Dickinson in France and Dickinson College are pleased to announce that, at the end of July 2015, the Toulouse center will be transferred from the rue du Japon to 2, place Alphonse Jourdain. The new Center – adjacent to the Jardin Japonais – is located on the ground floor of a 10-story building, in a pedestrian area across from the Toulouse Business School and in direct proximity to several other universities, in the heart of the downtown Compans-Caffarelli neighbourhood.
The Dickinson Center is changing its location primarily in order to meet the French equivalent of the American Disabilities Act. However, we remain dedicated to the original mission established by Dickinson’s French and Francophone Studies Department: to provide an engaged study abroad program in an immersion setting while furthering our exchanges with our local university and community partners. In our new center, we will offer the same support and structure we have provided for over 30 years to our students: classroom and work spaces for student exchanges and orientation; administrative offices, serving as a liaison between local partners, home stays and the Carlisle campus; a privileged environment conducive to intercultural learning and research. We look forward to welcoming you at the new Dickinson Center at the start of the 2015-2016 academic year.
New address as of July 31, 2015:
Dickinson en France – 2, place Alphonse Jourdain, 31000 Toulouse, France
