Extraordinary challenges. Extraordinary solutions.

Dartmouth is answering the call with a fundamentally different approach to leadership. 

Dartmouth's human-centered approach to education, research, and entrepreneurship prepares leaders who understand that the tools of science, engineering, and business are not only how we solve problems, but also how we improve lives and better our world.

With education and research rooted in the liberal arts, our students and faculty collaborate across disciplines, engage in groundbreaking research, and create the tools and technology to solve important challenges in our increasingly diverse and interconnected world.

Human-Centered Impact

"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

Building for a Better Future

West End Reimagined

The West End will serve as a hub for interdisciplinary learning and discovery at Dartmouth by:

Experiential Learning

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.

Three Bold Goals

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

Advance Dartmouth's distinctive educational model to empower teaching and scholarship across disciplines, departments, and schools to spark new ideas, discoveries and innovation.


Improve the Human Condition

Expand Dartmouth's capacity to make groundbreaking discoveries through world-class research and catalyze new applications that prioritize human well-being and societal impact.


Create Human-Centered Leaders

Equip students from all disciplines with scientific and technical fluency to better the world through business, engineering, computer science, and design.

Engineering in Action

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.
