Dartmouth College has announced a $10 million gift from alumnus and former New Jersey state senator and U.S. congressman Frank J. Guarini in support of the Ivy League school's off campus and foreign-study programs.
Guarini, who served as U.S. representative to the United Nations General Assembly during the Clinton administration, gave $10 million to Dartmouth in 2013 to establish and endow the Frank J. Guarini Institute for International Education. His latest gift will create new opportunities for Dartmouth students to study in countries around the world, learn from people from many cultures, and build their expertise in language, diplomacy, and global issues.
"I hope this increased endowment will inspire more students to travel abroad," said Guarini. "There is no better way to promote peace in our world than for young people to immerse themselves in different cultures, getting to know new people and expanding their worldview firsthand."
