Dartmouth is committed to hosting one scholar at risk in the 2022-23 and 2023-24 academic years.
It will be important to ensure that Dartmouth is a good institutional fit for the scholar and that they will be well integrated into the Dartmouth academic community during their 6–12-month position.
To facilitate this, the following materials should be submitted to Global.Dartmouth@Dartmouth.edu for a scholar at risk candidate:
- Candidate's CV
- One page summary of their scholarship and how it might fit into the work of others at Dartmouth, including possible courses they could teach/co-teach or research programs to which they could contribute, and any relevant details.
- Department chair's indication of support (via a letter or email stating such) including what the department can offer in terms of office space and courses to teach/co-teach, or other support
- Intended duration of stay and current location and visa status of the candidate
- Confirmation that the scholar has received or is applying for SAR Status through the SAR Network
The scholar is encouraged but not required to teach or co-teach a course during their placement. Significant guest lecturing in courses is another way to connect the scholar with faculty colleagues and students. The scholar may also use the time to conduct their research and/or writing projects, ideally with collaboration or consultation with Dartmouth colleagues. Active collaboration helps ensure that the scholar benefits from being a member of our academic community and reduces the risk of feeling isolated.
To support this effort, the Provost's Office has assembled a Scholar at Risk Committee to review applications and make recommendations to the provost. Committee members include:
- Lisa V. Adams, MD, Director of Global Initiatives, Associate Dean for Global Health at Geisel School of Medicine, Associate Professor of Medicine
- Victoria Holt, PhD, Norman E. McCulloch Jr. Director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding
- Yuliya Komska, PhD, Chair, Comparative Literature Program & Associate Professor of German Studies
- Samuel Levey, PhD, Associate Dean of the Faculty for the Arts and Humanities & Professor of Philosophy
- Ainsley Morse, PhD, Assistant Professor of Russian
- Victoria Somoff, PhD, Associate Professor of Russian
- Barbara Will, PhD, Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives & the A. and R. Newbury Professor of English
