The more than 1,000 faculty across Dartmouth’s four schools—Arts & Sciences, Geisel School of Medicine, Thayer School of Engineering, and Tuck School of Business—are among the world’s leading scholars, pursuing research at the highest levels of their disciplines. Dartmouth attracts more than $200 million in sponsored research funds annually and has one of the nation’s highest rates of journal citations per faculty member.
It’s no wonder that the Carnegie Foundation recognizes Dartmouth as a “research university with very high research activity.” Our research community includes postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates, who are intellectual partners with faculty in the work to expand human knowledge.
The range of this far-reaching inquiry, occurring in departments and more than 50 research centers and institutes, brings faculty and students together to focus on areas that cut across disciplinary boundaries. State-of-the-art facilities—such as the Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center, Rauner Special Collections Library, the Dartmouth Brain Imaging Center, and the Black Family Visual Arts Center—provide critical support and foster an environment of excellence.
Through intellectual and analytical outreach, Dartmouth researchers promote public interest, understanding, and involvement in complex issues facing society. They serve in government, work through professional organizations, and lead national and international collaborations.
Each year, Dartmouth hosts hundreds of thought-leaders who interact directly with students, faculty, and the community through colloquia, seminars, workshops, and individual meetings. Dartmouth also facilitates entrepreneurial activities that help faculty and students realize the potential of their research.
