Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The Dartmouth Center for Social Impact prepares students to be transformative leaders for the common good. Through community-driven experiential learning, our students cultivate their skills, scholarship, and passion to develop high-impact approaches to the most pressing societal problems. Our graduates go on to lead lives of purpose personally and professionally as social innovators, direct service providers, activists, philanthropists, and community researchers.


Imagine a world, 10 years from now, when Dartmouth graduates are a force for building inclusive, economically secure, healthy communities with opportunities for everyone to thrive.
