Dartmouth College has announced the creation of the Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society, established to advance the understanding and knowledge of a resource that powers modern life and is directly related to society’s standard of living and success. Gifts of $113 million have been committed to name the institute in honor of energy industry leader Arthur L. Irving. Dartmouth aims to raise a total of $160 million to fund the institute.

We bring together various approaches and disciplines, to focus on big challenges where we can engage our students in solving real-world problems,” says Ross Virginia, Myers Family Professor of Environmental Science and Director of the Institute of Arctic Studies at the Dickey Center for International Understanding.
