Fiscal Discipline / Stewardship

Fiscal rigor, together with prodigious fundraising and excellent investment performance, has allowed Dartmouth to increase investment in the academic enterprise, support robust growth in financial aid, enact the lowest seven-year percentage increase in tuition since the 1950s, and project a balanced budget for the coming decade.

Through visionary fiscal leadership and judicious financial management, Dartmouth is now in a powerful financial position to continue to invest in key long-term initiatives, such as creating a more welcoming and inclusive community; ensuring the mental and physical well-being of students, faculty, and staff; expanding financial aid; and positioning the institution for continued success in a rapidly changing higher-education landscape.
