A Full Agenda for the Board

At their November meeting, the Dartmouth Board of Trustees dedicated Kemeny Hall and the Haldeman Center, discussed a review of the College's mission statement, and considered plans for several new facilities, including a life sciences building, dining hall projects in two locations, and an intercollegiate soccer field. The life sciences facility, to be located near Dartmouth Medical School, will provide teaching, laboratory, and office space for the biological sciences and the medical school. Plans are also under way to replace Thayer Dining Hall with a new building that will improve space use on the same site and to construct a dining commons named for the Class of 1953 adjacent to the McLaughlin Residential Cluster. The Board also reviewed the planning process for a visual arts center on Lebanon Street that will provide space for the film and television studies and studio art departments, and the soccer facility, named in honor of Alden "Whitey" Burnham, a coach and administrator at the College from 1960 to 1989, to be located near Scully-Fahey Field. In other business, the finance committee received an update on the current year budget, and the Trustees received a report on the progress of the $1.3 billion Campaign for the Dartmouth Experience, which recently passed its midpoint and has raised $774.1 million as of Nov. 29.
