Call-to-Lead Campaign Creates Lasting Impact for Thayer
Sep 01, 2023
Thayer School of Engineering's alumni and supporters played a critical role in the success of Dartmouth’s Call to Lead campaign, which raised more than $3.7 billion in gifts to the university. Their gifts not only transformed the West End into a hub for innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship, but also helped expand Dartmouth Engineering's capacity to prepare more students for lives of human-centered leadership.
Class of 1982 Engineering & Computer Science Center: $193.4 million
The Class of 1982 Engineering & Computer Science Center provides critical spaces for all Dartmouth students to engage in hands-on, collaborative, interdisciplinary learning and research in engineering, computer science, design, and entrepreneurship. Inside the Stuart Family Design Commons, students actively apply human-centered design principles to help solve complex local and global challenges.
Across both engineering and computer science research labs, faculty and their research teams actively work towards the next cutting-edge discovery in energy technologies, artificial intelligence, medical technologies, and biofuels.
Thayer Endowment: $55.7 million
Gifts to the campaign also helped double the number of endowed professorships in engineering, which has enabled Dartmouth to recruit top faculty with expertise in energy, climate, and health. In addition, these gifts have helped Thayer continue to support and expand experiential learning opportunities, and increase undergraduate and graduate financial aid and fellowships, including for the Bachelor of Engineering (BE) program.
Continued gifts to fund financial aid and scholarships for Dartmouth undergraduates pursuing the BE during their fifth year is helping ensure that costs is never a barrier to access for talented, promising engineers.
Thayer School Annual Fund: $14.9 million (7-year total)
Dartmouth called, and alumni enthusiastically answered. The Call to Lead campaign helped energize giving across the board, with record Thayer alumni giving to the Thayer School Annual Fund. These annual gifts enhanced support for mission-critical programs, operational needs, and financial aid — from supporting hands-on learning in ENGS 21: Introduction to Engineering courses to off-campus field trips and experiential learning opportunities that makes Thayer truly special.
