Welcome to Dartmouth College Uniformed Service Alumni: a shared interest alumni group for Armed Service members and their families. 

We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting the ideals of service at Dartmouth and supporting all those who put on a uniform in the defense of their country.

We invite all members of the Dartmouth Community -- from the college or grad schools, alumni or faculty, service members or their families -- to join with us and ensure that the Long Green Line of Dartmouth military alumni continues to follow the trajectory of service, wherever it may lead.

In partnership with the Rockefeller Center For Public Policy: Environmental security posits that there are human induced changes to the Earth’s environment of such a magnitude that they represent threats to the peace and security of the world. Stated simply, the environmental changes have the potential to deny basic human needs to billions of people. This lecture by Dr. Chris King, Dean of the US Army Command and General Staff College, will examine the path that leads to environmental issues becoming security and defense concerns.
