Moving Dartmouth Forward

A Call for Change

On January 29, 2015, President Phil Hanlon '77 presented the final Moving Dartmouth Forward Plan. In his report, President Hanlon outlines a vision of a Dartmouth that lives up to its enormous potential, and he challenges every member of the Dartmouth community to help achieve that vision.

Transforming the Student Experience

The Moving Dartmouth Forward Plan includes a number of measures, some of which are already under way, to put Dartmouth at the forefront in creating higher expectations of college students while strengthening Dartmouth's longstanding commitment to leadership in teaching and learning.

The final plan and many supporting resources are available through the links below.

  • President Hanlon's full plan, which drew from input from many members of the Dartmouth community.
  • President Hanlon's speech to the Dartmouth community announcing the plan.
  • Questions and answers about how the plan affects members of the Dartmouth community and how it will be implemented.
