About Us

The office of Institutional Diversity & Equity is focused on supporting, assisting, and enhancing Dartmouth's commitment to learning and pluralism. Our planning and programs help to maintain and build an environment that accepts and welcomes difference. While race and sex figure prominently into our office's understanding of diversity, we are also interested in examining and fostering dialog on other aspects of individual and social identity (e.g., age, class, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, marital status, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and veteran's status).

We provide services and identify additional resources that allow for learning and discussion of these themes. We create and coordinate a wide range of opportunities for all administrators, faculty, students, staff, and guests to obtain a greater appreciation and capacity to understand our complex community, the institution, and the people who work and learn on our campus.
