The Tucker Center

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.

2017 Immersion Spring Break Program Application

The Tucker Center is currently seeking applicants for students to participate in our 2017 Immersion Spring Break (ISB) Program to Washington DC. The theme of the program is "Faith, Race, and Justice." We are seeking both trip leaders and trip participants. Students from all religious and moral traditions are encouraged to apply.

The ISB Program seeks to bring together students from a diversity of religious and moral traditions to explore the issues of race and justice in the Washington DC Metro Area. Together, this group will engage with a variety of community agencies, religious communities, Dartmouth Alumni, students, and public officials wrestling with issues of faith, race, and justice. By exploring issues of faith and race, participants will have the opportunity to ask provocative questions about one of the most important issues of justice facing our national community and develop meaningful relationships within the context of religious difference while delving deeply into personal visions of what it means to live a moral life.

Trip Leaders

Leaders will be asked to help plan, fund raise for, and guide the program.

Applications are due by midnight on Saturday, October 1.

Multifaith & Religious Diversity

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
