Bookmark and Share

“The campaign was an investment in the enduring attributes of Dartmouth that attracted me to this place—a personalized educational experience, a commitment to providing all students the means to aspire to a Dartmouth education, and an experience that equips students with the ability to develop expertise throughout their lives and contribute to the betterment of society.”
— President Jim Yong Kim

The campaign raised $1.3 billion, funding faculty and student priorities from 2002 to 2009. It included the undergraduate college and three professional schools and supported the strategic goals of President Emeritus James Wright.

It attracted vital investments in dozens of initiatives that moved the curriculum into emerging fields of study, increased student scholarships, and provided faculty and students with the facilities and tools to do their best work.

All gifts were designated during the campaign. They funded endowments that were specified by donors for particular priorities, provided capital for new facilities, and supplied current-use dollars to fund annual operations.
