Geisel Launches $250M Fundraising Campaign

Geisel Launches $250M Fundraising Campaign

Geisel is a place where collaboration is easy. It's a place where the aspirations of students and faculty find fertile ground in a supportive, close-knit community. It's a place where interaction among disciplines and across Dartmouth fuels discovery and innovation. It's a place where the drive to improve healthcare delivery is interwoven with biomedical research, medical education, and clinical care—always with patients at the heart of our work.

These are the distinguishing characteristics at the core of Geisel's ambitious $250 million campaign, Interaction, launched on April 27, 2018, as part of Dartmouth College's campaign, The Call to Lead. Geisel's campaign is focused on three strategic imperatives, where philanthropic investments over the next five years will drive successes that are both core and cutting edge:

Educate
Complete Physicians

Pursue
Bold Ideas

Transform
Healthcare

 

This will include new support for our distinctive medical education program and student scholarships, transformative gifts to Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, and investments in Geisel's groundbreaking multi-disciplinary research centers.

At Geisel, we encourage students to become citizens of curiosity—physicians and scientists who will listen deeply to patients, examine accepted wisdom, and tackle tough questions. That's how we create leaders, and that's how we can have the greatest impact.

—Duane Compton, PhD
Dean, Geisel School of Medicine

The result will be felt in the lives we touch with improvements in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease; broad access to high-quality healthcare; and the compassionate care and leadership of outstanding Geisel-trained physicians.

In the pages that follow, read examples of how Geisel students, faculty, and alumni are bringing this vision to life.


The Campaign at a Glance
