HANOVER — Two Dartmouth College alumni are each giving $10 million to the Ivy League school to create "academic clusters" aimed at addressing global challenges.
Richard Levy, a 1960 graduate, has committed $10 million to support a faculty team in health care delivery science as part of Dartmouth's larger strategy to curb health care costs while ensuring high-quality care and access. The second gift, from an anonymous alumnus, will establish a faculty team focused on globalization and human well-being societies around the world.
The academic clusters are part of President Phil Hanlon's initiative to build on the college's areas of distinction. He hopes to recruit leading scholars to Dartmouth to conduct research and teach in interdisciplinary teams focused on major global challenges.
