Dartmouth receives historic $100 million gift
President Philip J. Hanlon accepted an anonymous gift of $100 million, the largest single outright donation in Dartmouth’s 244-year history.
That vision includes teams of interdisciplinary faculty collaborating at the cutting edge of discovery, with students given uncommon access to new ideas around the globe through course work and research opportunities.
“The gift is for $100 million; $50 million of that $100 million is being set aside and is being used to inspire others to give and it will be used as a two-to one-match, so for every $2 that is donated, the donor will give another $1,” Anderson said. “So $50 million will hopefully raise an additional $100 million.”
Hanlon recently announced the Cluster Initiative, which aims to build Dartmouth faculty in a way that would address worldwide problems through an interdisciplinary collaborative effort among faculty members.
The initiative plans to create approximately 30 to 40 endowed positions over the next decade. To date, 29 cluster proposals — involving as many as eight faculty members each and more than 100 faculty in total — have been submitted to the Office of the Provost.
