About the Program

The Harris Program was created to strengthen relationships between Dartmouth College and academic institutions in Germany and to promote a deeper understanding between the two countries. The William P. and Dewilda N. Harris German/Dartmouth Distinguished Visiting Professorship program brings Germans from any academic, public, or artistic field to Dartmouth to teach, lecture, participate in conferences and joint research, contribute to departmental offerings, and establish on-going collegial contacts.

Nomination Process

Departments and programs are invited to propose future visitors, following the nomination procedure. Since most appointments require considerable lead time, nominations for specific terms in Dartmouth's academic calendar should normally be submitted at one year in advance. All nominations are voted on by the Harris Advisory Board.
