Carol Folt

 

Carol L. Folt is the Dartmouth Professor of Biological Sciences and has held numerous leadership positions at Dartmouth, including dean of graduate studies, dean of faculty, and provost.

 

IMPACT ON DARTMOUTH

Folt's strategic decision-making led to a significant expansion of the faculty and launched new initiatives in the digital humanities, sustainability science, and international studies, among many others. Folt also designed and steered Dartmouth's first community-wide strategic-planning process, working with hundreds of faculty, staff and students to integrate the input of thousands in preparation for Dartmouth's 250th anniversary in 2019.

 

MAKING A MARK

A distinguished scientist, Folt has received national recognition and awards for her work on global climate change and the effects of dietary mercury and arsenic on human health. She was awarded the Dartmouth Huntington Prize for excellence in teaching and research and has mentored more than 100 undergraduate and graduate students hereā€”many of whom remain in close contact with her for decades

 

EXTRA CREDIT

In college, Folt pursued dual passions of science and studio art. Today, she takes inspiration from art to fuel her scientific discoveries and during her year as interim president, she led Dartmouth's first community-wide "Year of the Arts" celebration.
