Dartmouth College President Jim Yong Kim will deliver the second Dartmouth Presidential Lecture from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 29, 2010 in the Moore Theater of the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

President Kim will speak on how insights from the fields of education, psychology and brain science, sociology, anthropology, and others can be used to build upon Dartmouth’s exceptional liberal arts experience, and how these insights can help Dartmouth foster the “habits of the mind” students need to be successful and have a positive impact on the global community.

“These ‘habits of the mind’ are critical for Dartmouth students’ success on campus, as well as their capacity for leadership after they leave Hanover,” said President Kim.

President Kim’s lecture will be broadcast live online. To access that webcast, along with video, photos, and transcripts after the event, please visit the Presidential Lecture Series website.

“Our goal with the Presidential Lecture Series is to supplement the classroom experience with real-life lessons on innovation, collaboration, and leadership,” President Kim said.

The series launched on July 16, 2010 with an inaugural lecture by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
