“Our goal is to continue a broad conversation as we define our vision of the place we want Dartmouth to be. The work of deans Helble and Compton at Thayer and Geisel are very much a part of that process and I am looking forward to hearing their insights,” Mills said. The discussion will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the community.

The town hall session, part of Mills’ ongoing series of community discussions, will run from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, 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 in October 2015, calling it an opportunity to foster a broad discussion about Dartmouth’s future. In January, Mills was joined at the town hall meeting by Matthew Slaughter, the Paul Danos Dean of the Tuck School of Business, for a discussion of Tuck’s position today and into the future.
