A Look at Some of Dartmouth’s Upcoming Events


April and May are busy months at Dartmouth, with conferences, symposiums, and performances scheduled across campus. Here is a look at some of the upcoming events.

April 20-April 26:  A Clothesline Project’s exhibition of T-shirts decorated by sexual assault survivors and their supporters will be on display at Collis. Dartmouth has held this event for many years; the shirts on display have been decorated by members of the Dartmouth community. The Clothesline Project began in 1990 and is used to spread awareness about relationship and sexual violence. The project is just one of Dartmouth’s events in honor of the national Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
