Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, has announced a $3 million gift from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation to endow an established leadership development program at the school's Tuck Center for Leadership.
The foundation's latest gift in support of the Paganucci Fellows Program will permanently endow a fund to provide Dartmouth undergraduates with opportunities to participate in experiential learning that promotes the study of how businesses can create both financial and positive social value. Established in 2006, the program engages undergraduates in an intensive eight-week education in personal leadership development and social entrepreneurship.
"I am thrilled and inspired by the Paganucci program's unparalleled success," said Matthew Slaughter, the Paul Danos Dean of the Tuck School and the Earl C. Daum 1924 Professor of International Business. "It provides undergraduates with a dynamic educational platform to work with us here at Tuck today, in order to serve the emerging needs of the world tomorrow."
