Dartmouth Public Voices

About the Fellowship

The Dartmouth Public Voices Fellowship grew from the initiative of professors Colleen Glenney Boggs (English) and Jennifer Lind (government), who launched the partnership with The OpEd Project. The fellowship is dedicated to increasing the public impact of the nation's top scholars, particularly those with minority voices.

The program is customized for up to 20 Dartmouth thought leaders who meet four times a year for interactive, daylong seminars designed to expand their thinking and amplify their expertise. Dartmouth Public Voices fellows are matched with journalist mentors from major media outlets who work one-to-one with them throughout the fellowship period. Fellows are encouraged to collaborate across disciplines to foster ideas and opinions. Since its launch in 2012, fellows participating in the Dartmouth initiative have published more than 300 opinion pieces in print and digital media, and several fellows have parlayed their op-eds into appearances on radio and television, publications, and research projects.
