Actions Taken as Part of Moving Dartmouth Forward: Community Building

Creating an Inclusive Community

The following is a list of action steps to support the promotion of creating an inclusive community. These steps were complemented with a suite of actions enacted in that same period around sexual violence prevention, response, and support and high-risk drinking reduction.

  1. House Communities
    • Created six house communities with increased faculty involvement;
    • Built dedicated space for study and social interaction through the House Centers
    • Continued organization and hosting of social and academic programs
  2. Created the Student Organization and Accountability Program
  3. Developed and implemented a student code of conduct, known as The Dartmouth Pledge, that is signed as part of Matriculation.
  4. Launched the Experiential Learning Initiative and grant process.
  5. Appointed an Associate Provost dedicated to expanding the diversity of the faculty and post-doctoral programs
  6. Designated funds to support hiring faculty from underrepresented groups
  7. Enhanced financial aid offerings to facilitate the ability for all students to engage fully in the Dartmouth experience.
  8. Piloted models for a College-wide leadership and wellness initiative over three years before shifting focus to support pre-existing programming in these areas

Additionally, this work intersects with other large-scale campus initiatives including Campus Climate and Culture Initiative (C3I) and Inclusive Excellence. Read more about the current activity of Moving Dartmouth Forward.
