The public understanding of science, and the role and impact it has in our lives, is a matter of growing importance nationally. In keeping with Dartmouth’s mission, the Office of Outreach in the Provost Office serves as a point of contact for partners outside our institution whose interests include science awareness, science education and science literacy. These partnerships include national as well as regional efforts, such as enrichment activities with local schools, professional development for teachers, workshops for members of the high tech workforce and projects that synthesize and interpret science for public policy.
In addition to serving the public good, these interactions enrich institutional scholarship, foster civic engagement and extend Dartmouth’s instructional capacity beyond traditional campus boundaries.
This website was developed as a resource for Dartmouth faculty and students interested in advancing public engagement in science, technology, engineering and math and for members of the broader community who would like to participate in these initiatives or help us develop new ones.
