The William Jewett Tucker Center inspires and supports responsible leadership in students, faculty, and staff. Our programs offer opportunities to cultivate a sense of meaning and purpose through spiritual, ethical, and moral exploration and engagement. More than 20 percent of Dartmouth's undergraduate students take part in our programs.
We encourage multi-faith learning and engagement through our Multi-faith Initiative. We look to build relationships through the exploration of the variety of religious faith, honoring common ground and shared concerns while not shying away from real and significant difference.
We also support more than two dozen diverse religious groups that provide opportunities for students to grow spiritually.

Be not content with the commonplace of character any more than the commonplace in ambition or intellectual attainment. Do not expect you will make any lasting or very strong impression on the world through intellectual power without the use of an equal amount of character and heart of William Jewett Tucker, ninth president of the College
