Dartmouth Doesn't teach you

Dartmouth may be one of the eight Ivy League schools and among the most prestigious universities in the country, but Asian American students there say there’s a major hole in their education.

India.com reports that students at Dartmouth have launched a What Dartmouth Doesn’t Teach You campaign to bring attention to the lack of Asian American Studies and related curriculum on campus.

The students are photographed holding up a white board with messages such as “Dartmouth doesn’t teach me the history of Asian American discrimination/oppression in the U.S.” to “Dartmouth doesn’t teach me that they value Asian American Studies.”

“I was really impressed by Yale’s similar photo campaign and thought a pan-Ivy collaboration would strengthen our [position],” Moulshri Mohan said.

The Facebook campaign is bringing attention to the lack of Asian American Studies at Dartmouth.
