About Us

Baker at night
Baker Library at night.

The Dartmouth Centers Forum was founded in 2005 by six centers (the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning, the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Ethics Institute, the Leslie Center for the Humanities, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences, and the William Jewett Tucker Foundation), as a collaborative alliance to promote an open campus-wide dialogue on complex issues. Twelve others have joined since the DCF's founding.

Although all eighteen centers/organizations continue to pursue their missions individually, the DCF provides an opportunity for programming to be coordinated using shared resources.
