Dartmouth College. Summer Programs
Reporting to the Provost, the Office of Summer Programs was established in 1961 by a motion of the Board of Trustees, and charged with operating a fourth term. Faculty appointments, admission of students, directing student housing and social life, and publicity for the summer term were all responsibilities of the Dean of Summer Programs. The original plans for a summer term were not directed toward an additional academic term for Dartmouth undergraduates, but the Trustees anticipated the eventual need for a summer term of study for undergraduates and delegated the responsibility of developing and orchestrating that summer term to the Dean of Summer programs. Professor Waldo Chamberlin served as the first Dean of Summer programs.
