President Jim Yong Kim to Give Keynote to Open $300 House Design Workshop at Tuck


On Wednesday, January 25, Dartmouth College President Jim Yong Kim will deliver the keynote address at the Tuck School of Business to launch a four-day design workshop for the $300 House Project, a concept developed by Tuck Professor Vijay Govindarajan.

In the fall of 2010, Govindarajan developed the $300 House concept and began a blog to initiate a dialogue on proposed solutions to develop low-cost housing for the poorest populations in the world, those who are not currently served by any conventional housing programs. Since the initial concept discussion, students, faculty, and staff from Tuck, the Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth’s Studio Art Department, and the Center for Health Care Delivery Science have collaborated on the $300 House project.

The address is open to the public and will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25, in the Georgiopoulos Classroom in Raether Hall at the Tuck School of Business.
