Access Dartmouth serves as a mentorship organization for incoming students with disabilities and access challenges and helps ease their transition to Dartmouth. The group also engages in accessibility advocacy and activism on campus. Through these two missions, we hope to create a Dartmouth environment that is more supportive of students with disabilities through creating a strong, centralized disabled community and enacting structural change.
Colleges Against Cancer
The Dartmouth Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) chapter is a collaboration of Dartmouth students dedicated to eliminating cancer by initiating and supporting American Cancer Society programs, such as Relay for Life, in the Dartmouth community.
Dartmouth Mental Health Student Union
Dartmouth Mental Health Student Union (DHMU)’s mission is to provide information and resources regarding mental health, to advocate on behalf of students struggling with mental health, to encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed, to facilitate peer support, to integrate diverse perspectives on mental health on campus, and to bridge and maintain constructive dialogue between the various mental health resources on campus.
Primary Care Progress at Dartmouth
Primary Care Progress (PCP) is a non-profit organization that strives to revitalize the primary care system by building a new interprofessional generation of leaders in primary care, accelerating educational reform, and advancing innovations in health care delivery.
Health Access for All
Health Access For All (HAFA) is a student group of Dartmouth College undergraduates committed to fighting health inequities in the United States. We focus on supporting members of the Upper Valley region (the community surrounding our campus), which includes parts of New Hampshire and Vermont. We raise money for nonprofits that remedy health disparities faced by low-income residents hosting charitable events and providing paid tutoring sessions. All of our proceeds collected from these methods support these vital community organizations. We partner with local high schools and middle schools, small businesses, and other Dartmouth student organizations to accomplish this goal.
Student Climate Health Alliance
The Student Climate Health Alliance is part of a broader grassroots movement striving to address climate change by highlighting the often overlooked connections between climate change and health. On the Dartmouth campus, we bridge existing sustainability and health groups with a community of students and college affiliated individuals who are passionate about climate change’s impact on health and health care. Through education, mentorship, and advocacy, we hope to inspire students to consider how to address the health effects of the climate crisis in their future careers. To that end, we spread information about climate change and health on social media, advocate for educational opportunities at the college, organize public speaker series, and connect students with mentorship and ongoing initiatives at the medical school (Medical Students for a Sustainable Future), hospital (Alliance for Climate and Health at Dartmouth), and in the state (New Hampshire Health Care Workers for Climate Action).
