Chosen Name Project

Dartmouth recognizes that some students wish to identify themselves by a name other than their Legal Name. For this reason, beginning in the fall 2019 term, Dartmouth will enable students to use a "Chosen Name" where possible in the course of their Dartmouth education. They may also indicate their gender identity and pronoun.

More information for students, employees, and alumni can be found on the Chosen Name Project page.

Dartmouth Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Alumni/ae Association (DGALA)

The Dartmouth Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Alumni/ae Association (DGALA) strives to foster community between and among the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Allied (GLBTQA) alumni/ae of the College by furthering the intellectual, social, cultural and educational well-being of GLBTQA alumni/ae and students and providing the College and the greater College community with active support in matters of mutual concern. DGALA also aims to enhance the experience of GLBTQA persons at Dartmouth and support the College’s commitment to diversity by fostering communications between and among GLBTQA alumni/ae and students, faculty, staff, administrators, the other affiliated groups and the College community as a whole.

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program gives students a theoretical base for a systematic analysis of the construction of gender and the historical, economic, political, social, and cultural experiences of women. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies (LGBTS) courses examine lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identities and politics in historical and contemporary contexts.

Trans at Dartmouth

OPAL LGBTQIA+ Student Advising is a safe space that is welcoming of all students, and the staff are available to talk to anyone at any time. Additionally, we have a selection of books and articles on gender identity and trans experiences. Counseling and Human Development at Dartmouth offers counseling to students who may be questioning their gender identity and would like to discuss it confidentially with someone.

Dartmouth has a number of single-unit bathroom, shower, and changing rooms across campus that are accessible to people of all gender identities and expressions. Many of these are also ADA accessible.
