Tuck School of Business Campaign Reaches New Milestone

Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business has surpassed its $250 million goal set at the start its Tuck Difference campaign, which aims to “expand access to business education, build capabilities of tomorrow’s leaders, and guide career journeys.” Since formally launching in 2018, the campaign has received contributions from more than 75% of Tuck alumni.

“From the beginning, The Tuck Difference campaign has been a collaborative effort to identify and invest in the qualities that most distinguish Tuck in the world of business education,” Dean Matthew J. Slaughter says in a press release. “The remarkable progress we have made is a credit to the abundant generosity of alumni, the leadership of our Advisory Board and Council members, as well as the dedication and creativity of faculty and staff colleagues who have helped us build upon our vision of what Tuck is and what we can become in the years ahead.”


As the campaign enters its final phase, Tuck is focusing on three main investment priorities: Expanding Access to Business Education, Building Capabilities of Tomorrow’s Leaders, and Guiding Career Journeys.

The first priority, Expanding Access to Business Education, focuses on supporting talent and diversity throughout all of Tuck’s programs and opening new avenues to business education.

“Responding to increasing competition among peer MBA programs, Tuck has doubled the total number of scholarships offered to incoming MBA students—helping to enroll exceptional students who may not otherwise choose Tuck,” Adam Sylvain, Assistant Director of Marketing Communications at Tuck, writes. “Campaign gifts have also supported in-demand programs like Tuck Business Bridge and TuckLAB, which provide foundational business knowledge, skills, and experiences for undergraduate students.”

The second priority, Building Capabilities of Tomorrow’s Leaders, aims to endow students with the necessary soft and hard skills to solve critical societal and business challenges.

“To prepare inclusive leaders who can effectively navigate today’s complex business and societal challenges, Tuck has invested in diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and laid out a roadmap for future progress in its DEI Strategic Review and Action Plan,” Sylvain writes.

The last priority, Guiding Career Journeys, is all about ensuring the Tuck education is integrated over the life and career of all students and graduates.

“Within the third campaign priority, Guiding Career Journeys, the school has made considerable strides in expanding the range of Tuck Alumni Lifelong Learning (TALL) offerings and career services available to alumni,” Sylvain writes. “TALL now encompasses a growing suite of programs and activities—including Faculty Briefings, Insights in Practice, Tuck Insider, and Career Dispatches.”
