"This is so much more than a building. It's a symbol of how we make our mark on the world – through the pathbreaking research that happens on our campus and through the development of leaders equipped with the skills and desire to make the world a better place," said President Hanlon.
President Hanlon welcomed thousands of students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and Upper Valley residents to the Dartmouth Innovation and Technology Festival, held May 12–14, 2022 to celebrate the grand opening of the West End District of campus.
"I sincerely hope this gesture will be one more step in our reconciliation for the disappointment Occom experienced, and in our resolve to continue our commitment to the education of Native students that John Kemeny reignited five decades ago and that Occom felt so passionately about," said President Hanlon.
"This incredible new building is a physical manifestation of our distinctive vision for this Institute as we strive to develop a sustainable global energy system for our future," said President Hanlon.
