Many Cultures, One Community
"Every day I feel like I know more at lunchtime than I did in the morning. I've especially enjoyed meeting other international students and engaging in cross-cultural dialogue with them about their experiences and home countries."
— Tehut Biru '21, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
At Dartmouth, diversity is one of our great natural resources. It's the foundation of the learning experience and a core element of the campus environment. We have developed several programs and initiatives to help turn that remarkable diversity into inspired collaborations, lifelong friendships, and global networks. We're proud of these efforts and the enduring impact on the students who participate.
"I am a Muslim Filipino, which is a rarity, but growing up in the Bronx, I was used to a highly diverse community. I was excited to find that Dartmouth is a very vibrant quilt. Everybody here is extraordinary in some way. There's no 'typical' to compare yourself against. Our curiosity and our humanity are what bind us. We connect to one another with open hearts."
— Lawrence Abu-Hammour '19, Bronx, NY
