Dartmouth College: Sustainability
The project changed the way the Hop undertakes partnerships. Importantly, the campus partners seem to more strongly desire ongoing interdisciplinary collaborations, and are approaching the Hop with new ideas for collaboration. Formally, during the Class Divide project evolution, the Hop became a voting member of the Dartmouth Center’s Forum, providing a formal mechanism for the Hop to be a partner in ongoing campus-based collaborative work.
- The Hop now has several sets of internal and external resources they did not have before Class Divide:
- An employee Task Force that is deeply versed in matters of community access, and whose work will continue to benefit the Hop’s institutional accessibility. The Hop Employee Task Force’s approach to assessing the economic accessibility of the Hop is being made public to peer organizations needing help. The report summary is available by clicking here.
- The Community Advisory board, who understand the Hop’s goals and programs and who will continue to function as advocate for them.
- The evaluation assessment tool we created for the high school projects is a useful matrix and can be easily shared.
