Current Initiatives

Faculty Development & Diversity

The Office of the Provost offers a number of resources to support faculty in their development throughout their careers. Below you'll find information about select funding opportunities, upcoming workshops and events, and resources to strengthen faculty scholarship and teaching. We also offer information and resources for departments to help them recruit diverse and talented candidates to Dartmouth.

Academic Clusters

As a pillar of President Hanlon's academic vision for Dartmouth, the Academic Cluster Initiative will extend Dartmouth's impact on the world through interdisciplinary faculty teams who collaborate at the leading edge of discovery.

Community Study Survey

In May 2016, Dartmouth completed a Community Study Survey to understand faculty, staff, and student views about living, learning, and working at Dartmouth. The final report and full results are available through the Office of Institutional Research.

Seed Funding Programs

The Office of the Provost has announced two internal seed funding programs to launch new scholarship, research, and creativity at Dartmouth. Faculty members in all departments and each of the professional schools are encouraged to apply for pilot funds and/or cross-disciplinary collaboration funds.

Society Of Fellows

Founded in 2014, under the leadership of President Philip Hanlon, the Society of Fellows—comprising Faculty Fellows, Postdoctoral Fellows, and Visiting Fellows—aims to foster intellectual and interdisciplinary community, and the integration of research with teaching excellence. The Society is administered by a Faculty Director, a Program Administrator, and Faculty Fellows, who recommend the appointment of Postdoctoral Society Fellows and Visiting Fellows.

Stamps Scholars Program

The Dartmouth Stamps Scholars Program was established in 2014 in partnership with the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation to recognize and reward exceptional students who exemplify leadership, perseverance, scholarship, service, and innovation. Dartmouth Stamps Scholars are part of a national network of Stamps Scholars located in 40 elite universities across the country. Stamps Scholars have access to an enrichment fund to engage in experiential learning opportunities that can be spread over multiple terms, during on and off terms.

Take a Professor to Lunch Program

The Take a Professor to Lunch program is a long-standing donor-funded program administered by Student Affairs through the Undergraduate Deans Office. We are grateful for the support of Gerry Kaminsky '61 whose generous gifts have made this program possible.
