Dartmouth College

Hanover, NH

Dartmouth, founded in 1769, is a private, Ivy League college. As President James Wright has observed, "If neither of the descriptive labels college or university fits us easily, that is eminently acceptable. We are a university in name and in basic values and purposes." Dartmouth is committed to promoting and celebrating the diversity of its community members. President Wright adds, "Our commitment to diversity is rooted in the fact that we are an educational institution. It is hard for me to imagine education going on without a richly diverse student body and faculty." Dartmouth's 265-acre campus is located in Hanover, northwest of Boston.
