Green City is a joint foreign study program between the Department of German Studies and the Thayer School of Engineering that will be piloted in the spring 2022 (pending final approval). This program invites students to combine engineering coursework that focuses on "green" and sustainable engineering with a fast-track German course (GERM 2–3) that satisfies Dartmouth's foreign language requirement.
Petra McGillen has been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. She additionally received the Karen E. Wetterhahn Memorial Award for Distinguished Creative or Scholarly Achievement, as well as the David Bloom and Leslie Chao Fellowship.
Since 1970, well over a hundred Dartmouth graduates have been awarded Fulbright scholarships or the German equivalent, DAAD fellowships, to spend a year either teaching or pursuing research in the German-speaking countries. In 2020, they are joined by three more Fulbright awardees: Chase Yakaboski, Thayer '23; Mary Tobin '20; and Claire Votava '18.
