Student Professional Development Groups

Dartmouth Humanitarian Design Initiative

Enhance well-being and safety, physically as well as mentally, of people affected by natural disasters using technical solutions to humanitarian needs through design and human-centered design and culturally knowledgeable implementation. 

Data Analytics Club

The purpose of the Data Analytics Club is to create a collaborative and cordial environment where graduate students involved in scientific research can congregate, update and share with their colleagues about current data analysis techniques in order to increase the quality and output of scientific research conducted at Dartmouth.

Graduate Consulting Club

The Graduate Consulting Club serves three purposes: to reach out to graduate students interested in management consulting; to better inform graduate students about the management consulting recruiting process, especially by acting as a case practicing and sharing network; and to gain experience in management consulting.

Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWISE)

GWISE  is a community of women from a variety of disciplines in science and engineering; a place for women to gain support during their graduate careers and to develop skills that will empower them in their professional occupations. Our activities include professional development, outreach, and building a social network of women in the sciences at Dartmouth.

Science, Technology, and Engineering Policy Society (STEPS)

The purpose of STEPS is to be a resource for graduate students interested in pursuing careers in public policy. We facilitate intradepartmental conversation on issues related to policy making and provide a clearinghouse for information relating to career preparation.

Social IQ Consulting

Social IQ is a team of young and enthusiastic scientists and engineers culled from the undergraduate and graduate populations of Dartmouth College, Thayer School of Engineering, and Geisel School of Medicine. We focus on providing pro-bono consulting services to social enterprises and not-for-profits, primarily using data analytics on business development decisions, measuring market awareness, and social impact.

Dartmouth Writers Society

Writing societies have functioned as a creative source for centuries. With this in mind, we have created the Dartmouth Writers Society. Our goal is to build a community of exceptional writers who nourish and replenish the creative energies of our members. Each term we will host workshops, roundtable peer reviews, monthly meetings, and tours to historic writer haunts. From these events our members will learn from professionals in the business, discuss their own writing, and network with each other.
