We are honored that Dartmouth President Jim Yong Kim has been nominated by the President of the United States for such an important position. The World Bank is one of the most critical institutions fighting poverty and providing assistance to developing countries in the world today. Advancing a mission of such global importance at the request of our nation's President reflects the qualities of service and engagement with the world that have long distinguished Dartmouth.
If the World Bank approves the nomination of President Kim, then Dartmouth's Board of Trustees will take appropriate steps to ensure continuity of leadership and determine the timing of a search.
