Last week, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth publicly launched The Tuck Difference: The Campaign for Tomorrow’s Wise Leaders, a $250-million philanthropic endeavor that is part of Dartmouth’s $3-billion comprehensive campaign.
The Tuck Difference has already surpassed an earlier target, with key supporters pledging $132 million leading up to the announcement.
According to the statement, the top priorities of the campaign are new investments in students—increasing Tuck’s current scholarship abilities—as well as investments in support of faculty excellence, program innovation, and campus revitalization.
“The order of these priorities—people, programs, places—is important,” says Tuck Dean Matthew J. Slaughter. “Our most cherished asset is talent. The dynamism and diversity of our students and our faculty are why Tuck thrives. They are the reason increasing our ability to attract the very best students and scholar-educators to sustain a world-class learning community comes first.”
“This is an ambitious goal,” Slaughter acknowledges of the campaign, “but Tuck is an ambitious place. Our graduates are a powerful part of our success. They are today’s wise leaders forging the path for tomorrow’s.”
“Tuck’s success rests on our ability to anticipate and adapt to the changing world. This is the innovative spirt that has kept Tuck at the forefront of business education for generations. To ensure we remain there, we must secure the excellence of our MBA program and seek out innovative new opportunities for pre- and post-MBA learners,” Slaughter says.
