President Hanlon announced in an email today that the College has received an anonymous $100 million gift to support academic excellence. The gift is the largest single donation in the history of Dartmouth. The donation includes a 2-1 challenge to double its size.

“This historic gift is an exceptional vote of confidence as we embark on an exciting journey to ensure Dartmouth remains the preeminent undergraduate institution in the nation; a magnet for human talent; and a college that cultivates a culture of ideas, discovery, and solutions to problems that will make the world a better place,” said President Hanlon in a  press release.

With the enormity of negative press currently surrounding the College, the timing of the gift is indeed “an exceptional vote of confidence.”
