In January, the Dartmouth community announced an ambitious goal: to make an impact by contributing 250,000 hours of community service around the world. Last Tuesday, The Call to Serve initiative surpassed 125,000 recorded service hours, placing it solidly on track to reach its yearlong target.

While the goal is no small undertaking, Vice President for Alumni Relations Cheryl Bascomb ’82 is confident that the community can meet it. “Dartmouth has a longstanding legacy of public service,” she says. “The Call to Serve is shining a spotlight on all the service our community members already do—as well as the many additional projects Dartmouth students, faculty, alumni, staff and families are doing in honor of our 250th. Our community seems excited about getting involved.”
