Dartmouth was founded in 1769 by the Rev. Eleazar Wheelock for “the education and instruction of Youth of the Indian Tribes in this Land ... and also of English Youth and any others.” Dartmouth became coeducational in 1972, and was named by the consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton as one of the world’s “most enduring institutions” in 2004.
Dartmouth has more than 50 research-focused centers, institutes, and groups in areas ranging from medicine and the arts to engineering and business. Many of these are interdisciplinary and bring together faculty and students from across campus to work on complex issues.
