Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity

Diversity, equity and inclusivity are directly tied to academic excellence at Dartmouth. A diversity of backgrounds and perspectives is necessary to maximize potential in knowledge creation and education, and equity—supporting every community member in reaching their full potential—is essential if the institution, as a whole, is to achieve its highest ambitions. Furthermore, the urgent issues facing humankind are increasingly complex and multifaceted, and to be a campus that brings all its talents together to address those challenges, we must practice inclusivity in everything we do.

Through new support programs and policies and the removal of barriers that impede success, Dartmouth made important strides towards its diversity, equity and inclusion goals throughout the Hanlon presidency.
