Dartmouth Begins New Program to Increase Participation of Blacks and Other Minorities in Theater Productions on Campus

The department of theater at Dartmouth College has launched a new program that will stage an annual production focusing on issues of particular relevance to minority students on campus. The program — Voices: The Dartmouth Theater Visiting Artist Program — will bring an accomplished minority artist to campus to collaborate on a production that addresses issues of racial or ethnic diversity. Participating artists of color may include actors, directors, or playwrights.

The administration hopes that the initiative will increase minority student participation in theater department activities on campus.
