Fostering Creativity With Intent

Enhancing every academic experience through the arts

Creative expression at the core of the liberal arts

As a reflection of our belief that the most imaginative thinking takes place at the intersection of disciplines, we are reenvisioning Dartmouth's Arts District. 

Our integrated learning districts will offer all students hands-on educational experiences to foster creative confidence, innovative thinking, and an entrepreneurial spirit.
