ABOUT

As the eighth largest regional alumni club, Dartmouth Alumni Association of Silicon Valley (DAASV) was formally established in 1968, but has roots dating back to 1881. As a not-for-profit, DAASV was founded to conduct educational, professional, athletic, social, and charitable activities relating to Dartmouth College. It seeks to extend the Dartmouth experience to both undergraduate and graduate alumni, their partners/spouses, families, parents, as well as current and prospective students, and friends of Dartmouth College in a wide range of programs and events in the greater Silicon Valley.

OUR MISSION

OUR GOALS

  • To provide a channel for continued intellectual growth by offering opportunities for thoughtful exchange.

  • To enhance the image of Dartmouth through community outreach.

  • To establish and sustain an active forum for professional and social networking.

  • To create and sustain an adjunct network for the College to support student admissions and career placement, as well as provide warm reception for College visitors.

  • To create a sense of pride in DAASV events and activities by maintaining an Association that operates as a cooperative community in which each Silicon Valley Dartmouth alumnus, alumna, spouse, parent, student, and friend can participate.

Leadership

The DAASV leadership meets regularly and all DAASV members are encouraged to attend, learn about the Board and its committees, and get involved. Meeting dates and times are posted on the Events page, and in each Club newsletter. The DAASV leadership consists of an 18 member Board of Directors (four of whom serve in an executive capacity known as Officers) and numerous committee chairpersons. Leadership elections and appointments are held each winter, and are open to all paid members of the DAASV community, including spouses/partners and parents.

Who We Are

Next time you believe you recognize someone while walking down University Avenue in Palo Alto, or surfing in Santa Cruz, or holding a business meeting in downtown San Jose, think Dartmouth. It could be the source of the connection.

There are approximately 1,800 members of the Dartmouth family living in the greater Silicon Valley area. We are innovative. We run companies. We rear families. We are college professors and elementary school teachers. Many of us practice law or medicine. And hundreds of us are redefining the world with marvels of engineering and technology.

The majority of DAASV members reside in the Palo Alto/Los Altos/Menlo Park triangle. The rest stretch from the Association’s northern border of Pacifica to its southern border of San Luis Obispo, nearly 115 miles away. Take a moment to learn more about yourself and your fellow alumni.
