There will be two sessions on Monday to allow for community-wide participation. The conversations, which are open to faculty, students, staff, and alumni, will run from noon to 1 p.m., in Haldeman 041, and again from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., on the ground floor of Fahey Hall. Each session will feature presenters speaking on the topic, followed by a time for discussion.

The noon event on Monday will be streamed live on Dartmouth’s YouTube channel.

The meetings are designed to give community members an opportunity to discuss and generate ideas around the initiatives President Phil Hanlon ’77 announced during fall term, and to advance implementation of the president’s plans to ensure that Dartmouth remains the premiere undergraduate teaching institution while deepening the impact of its scholarship nationally and internationally.

Here is the lineup of sessions currently scheduled, with presenters for each listed. Other topics will be added to the schedule as details become available.
