This one-day symposium brings Dartmouth alumni who graduated within the last 50 years and who have pursued careers in academia. These alumni will share how their scholarship and experience are helping to bring equity and inclusiveness to the academic profession. The panelists will discuss the challenges they faced as students of color at Dartmouth, where they found support on campus, and how the Liberal Arts curriculum has contributed to their professional achievements and successes. The alums will also address the skill of mentoring, cultivating support networks, and how to balance research, teaching, and service. The symposium takes a retrospective look at the history of underrepresented minorities at Dartmouth and looks toward building a diverse and inclusive future for students and faculty of color in the academic profession.
