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.
"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.
