Mills says he sees the sessions as an opportunity for an open and thoughtful conversation among administration, faculty, staff, and students to define a shared vision for the future of Dartmouth.

“I’m very glad to have Carolyn Dever join us again for this discussion. Between the two of us, there are few issues we can defer as being outside our portfolio,” Mills says. “I hope the community will take time to join us and share any thoughts or questions.”

The town hall session will run from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 11, in Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. The meeting is open to all members of the Dartmouth community.

Mills launched the series on Oct. 9, calling it an opportunity to foster a broad discussion about Dartmouth’s future. Dever joined Mills for the second session, on Dec. 4, when the two discussed plans to reinvest resources to foster academic excellence and other issues, and responded to a range of questions from the audience.
