Richard Mills Taps Surprise Guest for Town Hall Meeting


Richard Mills has lined up a special surprise guest for his town meeting session on April 15. For the fourth in his series of open conversations with the community, Executive Vice President Mills will invite his guest to give a presentation for the first half of the hourlong forum. He’ll use the rest of the session to cover a range of current topics and will invite the audience to ask questions and join in the discussion.

“I’m really excited about our special guest,” says Mills. “I think it will be a lot of fun.”

He hopes community members will join in, he says. “As ever, I expect we will have a chance to touch on a wide variety of current topics of interest to the community.”

The town hall session will run from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, in Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. The meeting is open to all at Dartmouth.

Mills launched the series on Oct. 9, calling it an opportunity to foster a broad discussion about Dartmouth’s future. Provost Carolyn Dever joined Mills for the previous sessions, on Dec. 4 and Feb. 11, when the two discussed the progress of the Moving Dartmouth Forward initiative launched by President Phil Hanlon ’77, plans to reinvest resources to foster academic excellence, and other issues. They also responded to a range of questions from the audience.
