Fine-Tuning the Art and Science of Learning
With an eminent faculty of deeply committed scholars and teachers, Dartmouth has the desire, capacity, and commitment to be the exemplar for student learning and faculty access.
Being the Best at What We Already Are
Build on Dartmouth’s traditional teaching strength, commitment to personalized education, and its faculty’s passion for innovation and scholarship.
Enhance the liberal arts experience with new opportunities for hands-on learning, adapting and strengthening the curriculum, revamping basic requirements as needed, and supporting technological and pedagogical innovation and assessment, and strategically grow the faculty and staff as needed.
Support faculty experimentation to develop new courses, try new technologies and teaching methods, collaborate across disciplines, and work in rapidly changing fields.
The Wisdom of Mentors, the Power of Leverage
An intellectual community dedicated to access and collaboration can move the world.
Strengthen programs for advising and mentoring to reflect a deepening commitment to personalized and hands-on learning, recognition of the complexity associated with studying abroad and taking terms to work off-campus, and the desire to better prepare students for graduate study and entering the rapidly evolving workplace.
Look for new ways to involve staff, other students, and alumni in the mentoring of students and the development of new opportunities, initiatives, and programs.
Knowledge, Skills, and the New Meaning of Mastery
A deeper engagement in learning: taking learning beyond theory and extending the classroom.
Require all undergraduates to engage in meaningful research, scholarship, and/or creative practice, and develop competencies-based objectives to complement curricular requirements.
Reimagine graduate education to better prepare students for successful careers in emerging fields and in professions outside as well as inside established academic disciplines.
Educating Beyond the Degree
The opportunity to educate extends well beyond the degree. Advancing society through education and discovery, opening campus to the world and enriching intellectual lives of alumni across generations is the obligation of a great institution.
Develop a strategy to increase the sharing of Dartmouth discoveries, campus events, courses, and other innovations with alumni, prospective students and faculty, and national and international audiences using new technologies, collaborations and communication tools.
Grow outreach and translational programs that spread innovation and contribute positively to local, national and global communities.
Invest in professional development of all faculty and staff, and promote health and well-being initiatives that lead to a high quality of life.
