Finances and Dartmouth’s master plan are the two topics to be covered at the next town hall meeting, set for noon, on May 14, in the Hopkins Center of the Arts’ Spaulding Auditorium.

Executive Vice President Rick Mills and Chief Financial Officer Michael Wagner will discuss the budget for the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, and the budget for the 2020 fiscal year beginning July 1.

Mills will also be joined by Steve Moore, Vice President of Campus Services, to discuss the College’s master plan, still in the early stages, that will drive decisions about future development of College land and facilities.

The plan will chart a course for campus preservation and development over the next 20 years, including buildings, landscape, open spaces, infrastructure, and real estate. In addition to planning for campus property, the master plan will look at land the College owns at Mount Moosilauke, in Warren, N.H.; the Second College Grant in Errol, N.H.; and adjacent to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H.

The hour-long town hall meeting, part of Mills’ ongoing series of community discussions, includes time for questions and feedback from the audience. The event is open to the public.
