Alumni event people chatting

On November 11 and 12, Dartmouth will celebrate 50 years of coeducation. Dartmouth Alumni Relations and the  Coeducation Planning Committee invite the entire Dartmouth community to participate in A Celebration of Women: 50 Years of Coeducation at Dartmouth.  

We invite our classes, club, and groups to expand our celebration beyond campus by planning virtual and in-person events with members of your communities.

Resources are available for Dartmouth volunteers and alumni organizations as they host events to commemorate this milestone. If your Dartmouth organization (class, club, group) wants to plan an event around the anniversary of coeducation, the College has a limited amount of swag and grant offerings that you can request.

We encourage you to collaborate with other Dartmouth groups that can co-sponsor or help promote your events.
