Dartmouth College Unveils Its Action Plan for Inclusive Excellence

dartmouth-picDartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, recently announced its “Action Plan for Inclusive Excellence.” Blacks are 7 percent of the undergraduate student body at Dartmouth, according to the latest U.S. Department of Education statistics.

The authors of the action plan stated that “Dartmouth needs no more reports, task forces, or initiatives that occur in isolation. Rather, Dartmouth needs action, alignment, accountability, and transparency. Today we stand together and commit our institution to cultural change. Dartmouth’s capacity to advance its dual mission of education and research depends upon the full diversity and inclusivity of this community. We have work to do.”

The plan contains more than three dozen new initiatives and enhancements of existing programs. Among the most notable items in the plan is a pledge to hire 50 faculty members from underrepresented groups over the next decade. To accomplish this goal, the college has doubled its Diversity Recruitment Fund to $2 million annually.
