In June 2020, the Alumni Council was notified that there will be one vacant alumni-nominated seat on the Dartmouth College Board of Trustees in 2021. The Association of Alumni invited all Dartmouth alumni to propose fellow alumni to fill this vacancy.
Following an extensive review process, the Council has nominated one candidate for alumni-nominated trustee in accordance with the Association of Alumni constitution.
