The largest single donation ever given to the New Hampshire school will also be used as a challenge grant to boost fundraising, and to support the engineering school. "What makes it really exceptional is that the only restriction is that the gift be used to build the academic excellence of Dartmouth," President Philip J. Hanlon said.
