Wearers of the Green was created in 1984 to honor students, alumni, and coaches who have met specific criteria for athletic excellence in their respective sports. Qualified students and alumni are eligible for induction five years after their class has graduated, while qualified coaches are eligible for induction after they leave the College. Varsity sport qualifiers are inducted in even-numbered years, while qualifiers in club sports, masters, and other sports are honored in odd-numbered years. To learn more about Wearers, and to see a list of all inductees, visit Wearers of the Green on the Dartmouth Athletics website.

The 2016 Wearers inductees will be recognized on campus during Dartmouth Night and Homecoming, October 28–29, 2016. Learn more about the Wearers eligible for induction, and view photos from the 2015 gathering.
