Introducing Dartmouth's Three Newest Faculty Clusters

Jan 12, 2016   |   Dartmouth Now

Dartmouth received $30 million in gifts during the final two weeks of 2015 to support the creation of three new academic clusters, fulfilling President Phil Hanlon’s goal of launching 10 interdisciplinary clusters by the end of the year.

By meeting the December 31 deadline for giving to the cluster initiative, four donors triggered $15 million in matching funds, ensuring that faculty will have support for research, travel, symposia, and other related activities.

The three newest clusters exemplify the breadth and ambition of President Hanlon’s vision for Dartmouth’s educational enterprise. Each of the clusters embrace a field of study in which Dartmouth is already strong:

  • Arctic Engineering in a Period of Climate Change
  • Meeting New Challenges of Cybersecurity
  • Personalized Treatments for Cystic Fibrosis
