Supporting Tomorrow’s Wise Leaders
Sustaining Excellence in Research in Teaching
Attracting and enrolling the most accomplished business students in the world helps create and sustain a culture of intellectual excellence at Tuck. Offering competitive scholarships to top student talent and those for whom our distinctive approach to leadership and learning most resonates is critical to that effort.
Having the resources to honor and acknowledge the most promising scholar-educators is essential to Tuck’s ability to deliver a world-class MBA experience. Investments in named funds for rising faculty, general faculty excellence funds, and chaired professorships will make Tuck a magnet for top faculty and deepen our impact on the world by creating a faculty of tomorrow.
“Tuck’s smaller scale, coupled with its clear focus, allows for closer and more creative interactions inside and outside the formal classroom. The combination makes this a very special place.” Ron Adner,
the David T. McLaughlin D’54, T’55 Professor
Future Innovations in Business Education
To ensure we meet the needs of tomorrow’s wise leaders and the organizations that hire them, Tuck is investing in innovations that strengthen the rigor and relevance of the Tuck MBA program and increase our impact. Critical investments in Tuck’s centers of learning and application, integrated leadership development program, and core and elective curriculum will enhance our distinctive learning experience and prepare future generations to lead.
The TuckGO global requirement has become a critical differentiator for Tuck. Through sustaining investments in our distinctive and pioneering portfolio of immersive global courses, we will expand our reach and propel the school forward as a leader in fostering a global mindset and whose graduates possess the wisdom and skills needed to address the world’s most pressing challenges.
To strengthen the MBA program by creating new opportunities for teaching innovation, student recruitment, and mentorship, Tuck is investing in programs that build on the success of Business Bridge and related offerings that provide new populations access to Tuck learning. To promote engagement and foster a community of lifelong learners, Tuck will also make investments in alumni programming and career resources to ensure the influence of the MBA program persists through life.

Invest in New Strategic, Technologically-advanced Spaces
The Murdough Center is perfectly situated to be a powerful campus connector. Home to classrooms and office spaces for both Tuck and the Thayer School of Engineering and to the Feldberg Business and Engineering Library, Murdough also benefits from its proximity to the broader Dartmouth West End reorganization, which includes the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society. Strategic enhancements to the existing Murdough facility will transform it into a vibrant neighborhood for knowledge in practice, with important new and updated meeting spaces for TuckGO, the Career Development Office, and Tuck’s centers.
Byrne Hall is at the heart of the Tuck experience, providing a vital center for social interaction that fosters Tuck’s trust-based learning community and coveted spaces for collaborating in small groups—a hallmark of the Tuck experience. Enhancements to increase the capacity for collaboration spaces will ensure Byrne Hall remains a warmly connected campus destination for generations to come.
“Hanover creates an environment where interactions with your peers is constant. I wanted to join a program where I could spend time with classmates in both classroom and social settings.” Sam Courtney T’17
“It is our commitment to innovation—to dynamic change rooted in historic strength—that has allowed Tuck to thrive and continues to guide and ground us as we look to the future.” —Dean Matthew J. SlaughterRead the Dean's Message
At Tuck we believe the world today calls for a special kind of leadership: confident yet humble, empathetic, courageous. This belief animated our founders more than a century ago and drives us still. But just as the world has changed so too has the means by which we bring our mission to life. It is this commitment to innovation—to dynamic change rooted in historic strength—that has allowed Tuck to thrive and continues to guide and ground us as we look to the future.
I am writing at this moment because we are at an important inflection point in our work. Today marks the launch of The Tuck Difference: The Campaign for Tomorrow’s Wise Leaders, a $250-million philanthropic endeavor to secure Tuck’s distinctive leadership and ready tomorrow’s wise leaders to take on the world’s most pressing challenges.
It is an ambitious goal—part of Dartmouth’s $3-billion comprehensive campaign—but Tuck is an ambitious place. To achieve it we must invigorate our historic commitment to the people, programs, and places that make Tuck unique.
The order of these priorities—people, programs, places—is important. 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.
Tuck’s success also rests on our ability to anticipate and adapt to the changing world. This is the innovative spirit 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.
Ensuring the vibrancy of our physical spaces is critical to our distinctive learning community. And today we find ourselves at an important moment for the places we hold dear. The coming years will see the Dartmouth College campus enriched by the creation of the new Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society and an expanded Thayer School of Engineering that will also house the college’s Department of Computer Science. Strategic investments in new and technologically advanced spaces for research, teaching, and learning at Tuck will be essential for us to thrive within the heart of this vibrant new crossroads of opportunity.
We greet the future from a position of strength. Through the reach and vitality of an extraordinarily loyal and generous alumni network, our graduates are a powerful part of our success. They are today’s wise leaders forging the path for tomorrow’s. In fact, as of this moment Tuck’s alumni and friends have already given $132 million toward our campaign goal, proving they are the force that advances our mission and quickens our steps. I am greatly inspired by this campaign progress thus far, which has already surpassed the total of Tuck’s previous campaign.
For Tuck and for the world, the stakes are great. But so are the opportunities. With your help, together we can deliver on our promise to the world and secure our legacy as the preeminent business school that creates, teaches, and applies life-changing knowledge.
That is The Tuck Difference, and at this moment we invite everyone in the Tuck community around the world to join us.
