Dartmouth is answering the call with a fundamentally different approach to leadership.
"As we face unprecedented challenges — a looming climate crisis, a historic pandemic, increasing cybersecurity threats — our leaders must take a human-centered approach to creating the tools, technology, and systems necessary to improving the human condition."
— Alexis Abramson, Dean of Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth
The West End will serve as a hub for interdisciplinary learning and discovery at Dartmouth by:
Project labs / Maker spaces / Technology-Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) classroom / The Digital Arts, Leadership & Innovation (DALI) Lab. Complementing Dartmouth's existing engineering project design labs, the new building will expand our capacity to provide opportunities for hands-on design, fabrication, and problem-solving experiences, giving computer science and engineering majors — and students from across Dartmouth's curricular spectrum — an unsurpassed environment for learning by doing.
Our vision for a better world is foundational to Dartmouth's reimagined West End. Through a $500 million investment, the West End will empower integrated learning, discovery, and innovation.
Engineering Without Boundaries
Improving the Human Condition
Dartmouth students and faculty engage in work with far-reaching human and global impact — research to advance the development of life-changing innovations for improved medical care, climate change mitigation technology, and sustainable energy solutions.
