Real Estate Office Guiding Principles

Guiding Principles

  1. Support the College's Mission through its physical environment and use of its physical capital.
  2. Provide a framework within which to facilitate, in a deliberate manner, the disposition of directly held local area real estate assets in the Dartmouth Endowment, consistent with the expressed desire of the Board of Trustees.
  3. Assure intergenerational equity at the College by preserving strategic real property assets from which current and future generations of students, faculty and staff at the College will benefit, while at the same time accomplishing the transfers in a considered and orderly process, recognizing that transfers may be to Plant and may take time to accomplish given resource constraints.
  4. Engage in thoughtful decision-making in the broader context of all the College's real estate holdings, Dartmouth's Strategic Master Plan, occupancies, the realities of market transactions, and timing considerations.
