Capital Campaign: The Thayer Experience
You’ve probably heard about the Campaign for the Dartmouth Experience, the College’s $1.3 billion capital campaign launched in November 2004. If you’re curious how Thayer School fits into that, read on.
Thayer School’s $60 million campaign goal addresses several critical needs:
Chairs and Faculty Support
- $6 million
- To endow chairs, support curricular initiatives, and aid faculty recruitment.
Dean’s Venture Fund
- $4 million
- To provide early financial support to promising faculty research and creative student initiatives
- $3 million
- To keep instructional laboratories, computer-aided design studios, and workshops in step with advancements in computational science and engineering; and to support lab instructors.
Technology and Liberal Education Fund
- $1 million
- To support Thayer School’s development of courses to prepare all Dartmouth students — not just engineering sciences majors — to make informed decisions on issues involving technology.
- $6.4 million
- To support the ongoing operation and programs of the school.
Student Financial Aid
- $4 million
- To help Thayer School meet students’ demonstrated financial need.
MacLean Engineering Sciences Center
- $35.6 million
- Featuring integrated project labs, studio classrooms, multimedia computing systems, and next-generation research facilities, the MacLean Engineering Sciences Center will provide critical space for Thayer School’s project-centered, interdisciplinary curriculum.
The campaign is progressing well. As of the end of March, alumni and friends have already pledged more than $36.6 million toward Thayer School’s campaign priorities.comments powered by Disqus
