May 17–19, 2018

The Alumni Council Athletics Committee spring meeting featured a series of updates from Dartmouth Athletics and the committee’s working groups, as well as two panels focused on the Dartmouth athletic experience. The committee heard how the “Dartmouth on the Road” group aims to engage alumni around Dartmouth teams’ road games and is excited to be building a new interactive schedule with the Dartmouth Applied Leadership & Innovation Lab to promote greater engagement. Dartmouth Peak Performance, or DP2, is working to support further connections with student-athletes and improving their preparation for careers. The committee heard about the opportunities student-athletes have on campus and beyond and learned about two 2018 Winter Olympians as well as four current student-athletes from Ivy Championship teams.
