About Susan Rose

Headshot of Susan RoseSusan D. Rose has served as Professor of Sociology at Dickinson College since 1984. An alumna of Dickinson (class of 1977), Professor Rose has been a leading scholar and teacher at the College for more than four decades. She is the author (or co-author) of four scholarly books, covering a wide range of topics. Her most recent book, powerful and still on the leading edge of social change across the United States and beyond, is titled The Carlisle Indian School: Site of Indigenous Histories, Memories, and Reclamations (2016). Professor Rose has also published some forty academic articles, and she has produced (or co-produced) six documentary films in multiple languages. She co-founded the Dickinson College Community Studies Center, and launched the Mosaic Programs, both institutions which have led students and faculty to make meaningful connections with communities locally and globally. By combining her work as a scholar, public sociologist, mentor, and teacher, Professor Rose has found ways to bring together communities too often divided across social boundaries, all while providing life-changing educational experiences for students.
