The Historical Accountability Student Research Program at the Dartmouth Library exists to aid Dartmouth in confronting and learning from its past. It began as part of the Office of the President’s Inclusive Excellence initiative and is now part of the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity's strategic plan, Toward Equity. The program, which is based at Rauner Special Collections Library, is offering several student research opportunities to assist Dartmouth students in exploring our collections and creating original content based upon primary sources.
Our innovative and dynamic program offers an open-ended scope for project topics and is dedicated to allowing undergraduates the opportunity research issues of diversity and inclusion in Dartmouth’s history. The program’s goal is not to create a definitive report or scholarly publication but to provide researchers of all degrees of experience to keep the dialogue about historical accountability alive and moving forward. It is a beginning, not a conclusion.
