Dartmouth has long been invested in providing equitable opportunities and supporting individuals in pursuit of excellence and knowledge. The college is pursuing diversity initiatives with renewed vigor and is striving to be at the forefront of change in academia.

The Guarini School is committed to developing a climate that acknowledges and embraces diversity, supporting a culture that fosters inclusion, and actively pursuing equity. Our commitment is driven by recognition of historical injustices and a firm belief that welcoming differences of opinion, experience, identity, and perspectives helps build a stronger community. 

To that end we have updated our Diversity Commitment and Plan. You can view the document HERE
