Five years since the launch of Moving Dartmouth Forward, several components of the original plan are now part of the fabric of the Dartmouth experience. The Sexual Violence Prevention Project (SVPP) has successfully become a mandatory experience starting with the Class of 2023 and the six House Communities welcomed their founding members in 2016. Other initiatives, such as those intended to reduce high-risk drinking, have been integrated into the processes and systems of the College and are now undergoing deeper analysis to inform improvement efforts. Still others have completed the initial concrete goals of MDF and have evolved into more comprehensive efforts, such as the formation of a Dartmouth Hazing Prevention Coalition.
See the Implementation Chart for a comprehensive look at the status of each MDF component.
The "Implementation Team," or primary coordinators of the specific elements listed in the MDF plan, periodically come together to share updates and discuss the future of MDF in connection with other community building initiatives.
