A Message from President Carol L. Folt

February 21, 2013

Dear members of the Dartmouth community,

This year has been one of much celebration, from the 40th anniversaries of our Native American Studies Program and Black Alumni of Dartmouth Association to the 50th anniversary of the Hopkins Center for the Arts. That historic period of time marked the beginning of an era of inclusion and innovation at Dartmouth which to this day defines the forward-thinking vitality that steers this institution toward our 250th anniversary and beyond.

Our celebration continues this term through the spring with a number of campus events being held to mark another critical 40th anniversary for Dartmouth: that of coeducation. Dartmouth matriculated its first female students in the 1972-73 school year, and 40 years later, Dartmouth alumnae have made an impact on virtually every academic discipline and profession in this country and around the world, from award-winning writers, artists and filmmakers to groundbreaking scientists, senators, businesswomen, and physicians.

The slate of events will begin with a Presidential Faculty Lecture delivered on February 25th by Punam Anand Keller, the Charles Henry Jones Third Century Professor of Management and an international expert on health promotion and financial literacy. On February 26th, gender equality advocate and former Olympic gold medalist Julie Foudy will come to speak about Title IX, followed by Anne-Marie Slaughter on April 3rd. A professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University and former director of policy planning for the U.S. State Department, Anne-Marie will speak on issues facing women in the workforce.

Then over the weekend of April 5th, the Offices of the President and Alumni Relations will host "Greenways: Coming Home," a symposium featuring panel discussions by alumni and faculty across a number of professional fields. Among our notable alumna speakers will be comedian and author Rachel Dratch (Class of '88) and WNBA president Laurel Richie (Class of '81).

I invite you to visit our website, Celebrating Coeducation: 40 Years of Change at The aim of this website is to be informative, inspirational, and inclusive, and in this spirit I encourage anyone planning a coeducation-related event to submit the details and descriptions at so that it can be featured on our website.

The changes that have taken place here over the past 40 years have been truly inspiring, and I look forward to seeing the myriad ways in which the men and women of Dartmouth today will build on this legacy of change to help create a more inclusive world for all the men and women of tomorrow.


Carol L. Folt, Ph.D.
