MAJOR PRIORITIES OF WORK
Advising and Engagement
In partnership with student organizations and campus partners, we create supportive systems for students in order to ensure a smooth and positive transition to Dartmouth, facilitate students' identity development, and increase their awareness of and access to resources throughout their time on campus.
Community and Leadership Development
We work to create a respectful and inclusive Dartmouth by coordinating and facilitating programs that center the values, needs, strengths, and practices of marginalized communities and by approaching leadership development through the lens of social justice.
Education and Training
We conduct workshops and trainings for students to increase their knowledge and awareness of identity, power, and privilege and the impact these have on themselves, others and communities. We equip students with tools for communicating across difference, recognizing bias, and intervening in moments of harm.
We work across the institution to remove barriers and address needs related to ethnicity, gender identity or expression, nationality, race, sexuality, first gen identity, and socioeconomic status. We empower students to self-advocate by helping them identify needs and develop strategies to achieve their goals.
