Campus Resources


The Office of Financial Aid oversees a few funds for extraordinary circumstances that students may encounter. Examples of these may include emergency travel, assistance with personal needs or assistance with educational needs not covered by financial aid. Priority for these funds will be given to students on financial aid, but all requests will be considered. Generally, funds are limited and will be disbursed to a student once per academic year.

To request these funds, please apply on DartHub, through the Financial Aid Tile.

Please note: the Barrier Removal Fund is not managed or disbursed by OPAL.

Inclusive Excellence

In February 2016, Dartmouth announced an effort to increase inclusion and diversity at Dartmouth. Three working groups - one each focused on faculty, students and staff - studied existing data on diversity and inclusion at Dartmouth, defined goals to measure progress, and established mechanisms to ensure accountability and transparency. In May, 2016 these groups made their recommendations to an Executive Committee for both short- and long-term actions to achieve a more inclusive and diverse campus. The Executive Committee, with input from alumni, in partnership with advancement, consolidated the working group recommendations into an Action Plan for Inclusive Excellence, shared with the community on May 27, 2016. The Inclusive Excellence website tracks progress made against the goals laid out in that plan.
