Dick Levy DC ’60 and anonymous donor fund gifts to support faculty teams.
Dartmouth has announced two landmark gifts that will engage faculty and students in tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges and ultimately aim to improve the lives of people across the globe.
Richard “Dick” Levy DC ’60 has committed $10 million to support a faculty team in health care delivery science—part of Dartmouth’s effort to transform health care in the U.S. by developing strategies to curb costs while ensuring high-quality care and access.
A second $10 million gift, from an anonymous alumnus, will establish a faculty team focused on globalization and human well-being in societies around the world.
These “academic clusters” are central to President Phil Hanlon’s institution-wide initiative to build on Dartmouth’s areas of distinction. The cluster initiative recruits leading scholars to Dartmouth to conduct research and to teach as part of interdisciplinary teams focused on major global challenges. In partnership with peers and students across the campus and beyond, the new faculty will address global challenges in an interdisciplinary framework, enriching the experience of Dartmouth students, and further attracting top faculty and students to Dartmouth.
