Campus Initiatives

The Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity (IDE) partners with divisions, offices, and departments across the institution to provide resources that promote access, respect, and community for all.

Dartmouth is making important strides towards its diversity, equity and inclusion goals. On this page you will find an overview of initiatives, plans, programs, and announcements. The links below will direct you to specific topics and we invite you to review them all as they describe the ongoing work related to DEI across Dartmouth.


Campus Strategic Initiatives

Under President Hanlon’s tenure at Dartmouth, three major campus-wide initiatives were launched with the shared goal of creating a more welcoming and inclusive campus community.  Each of these complementary initiatives represent the College’s progressive efforts to address the climate and culture for students, faculty, and staff.
