Join President Philip J. Hanlon ’77 for a special event with leaders from the Matariki Network of Universities (MNU), an international consortium of seven leading like-minded universities, based in seven different countries around the world. President Hanlon is the newly appointed chair of the MNU. Over appetizers and a hosted bar, you’ll learn about the programs the network offers, as well as Dartmouth’s critical role in helping the consortium move forward. The evening will feature a welcome by President Hanlon and remarks by Lisa V. Adams, MD, associate dean for global health, faculty director of the Global Health Initiative at Dartmouth's Dickey Center for International Understanding, director of the Center for Health Equity, and associate professor of medicine. Dr. Adams will draw on her extensive experience in global health teaching and practice to discuss building global partnerships in an era of de-globalization.

Named after the Maori word for the Pleiades star cluster, the MNU was formed to create mutually beneficial linkages in the areas of research, teaching, service, and administration. The network seeks to create new opportunities for international collaboration in research and education; to explore innovative opportunities for academic, student and administrative interchange; to facilitate benchmarking and the sharing of best practice to enhance quality and support institutional development; and to collaborate in projects which promote social responsibility both locally and globally.
