Dartmouth Graduate Outing Club

The Dartmouth Graduate Outing Club (DGOC) provides graduate students from different departments and programs opportunities for outdoor recreation and networking.

Dartmouth Graduate Outing Club Leadership Information

In order to qualify to lead a DGOC trip leaders must have the following qualifications:

    • Risk Management
    • CPR/First Aid
    • Driver Certification

The DGOC offers these classes on a regular basis here.

For technical trips such as rock climbing, back country skiing, and white water canoeing leaders must have an appropriate level of expert training.  In addition, DGOC leaders must register each trip with the Graduate Studies Office (Kerry Landers).

Registration must include:
    • Name of the trip leader
    • Name of Co-Leader
    • Cell phone numbers of both leaders
    • Name of graduate students going on trip
    • Destination/route/camp ground
    • Estimated start and end time
    • Type of transportation

*For advanced trips, all graduate students must sign a waiver.
*Use of Personal Vehicles

Effective January 1, 1991, it will be necessary, prior to the use of a personal vehicle for College-sponsored activities and programs, for the legal owner of the vehicle to file an Owner Approval Form (Form II) authorizing use of the vehicle for College-sponsored activities and identifying the student(s) authorized to drive the vehicle. The intent here is to ensure that vehicle owners know that their cars are being used in connection with College activity and that they may be assuming some liability. To assist students when requesting owner authorization to operate a vehicle, a sample letter requesting an owner's permission to operate a private vehicle is included as Form III.

Note: Additional copies of the forms may be obtained from P&TS at 6 Vox Lane.
