With a 20+ year history, the Tuck Diversity Conference (DivCo) has emerged as one of the premier business school diversity events. Student leaders choose the conference theme each year with the goal of celebrating all perspectives, ideas, and life experiences. The event offers prospective students a weekend of discussions, networking, mentoring, and socializing with Tuck students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

At Tuck, the welcome you receive as a student extends to partners, families, and pets! Partners enjoy many of the same benefits students do such as health insurance, living in Sachem Village, leading clubs, and participating in conferences. Some partners even audit classes or work at Dartmouth or Tuck specifically. All partners are welcome.
Our power is in our community, and your partner is a vital part of the Tuck fabric. Alumni often say that Tuck partners get the unique benefit of the “network without the homework,” and our hope is that your partner, whether near or far, feels that throughout their Tuck experience. To learn more about Tuck Partners (TPs), reach out to the Tuck Partners Club.
Tuck Pride was started as Tuck’s Gay & Lesbian Club in 1998 with 2 members. Since then, the club has grown to be the LGBTQ+ resource and support group for over 30 Tuck students and partners while also increasing LGBTQ+ awareness at Tuck.
In addition to engaging with other MBA LGTBQ+ clubs at peer schools, the group hosts events for Tuck students and partners who identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community, ranging from small group dinners to offsite community retreats. They also host events each year for the entire Tuck community. Two of the most popular events are:
"As a queer black woman, I had apprehensions about my ability to fit in if I was going to be living in the middle of nowhere in New England. DivCo gave me the opportunity to see people that looked like me thriving in Hanover, NH."
