Magnuson Student Leaders
"The DEN and the DEN Innovation Center defined my Dartmouth experience and feels like a family. I could rub shoulders with the innovators, coders, business people and designers all under one roof where symbiosis happened organically. Thank you so much for creating such a vibrant and life-changing space!"
– Natalie Afonina TH’16
The Magnuson Student Leaders
The student leadership of the Magnuson Center inspire, motivate and mentor their peers in all aspects of entrepreneurship. Our leadership program gives selected Dartmouth undergraduate and graduate students both experiential leadership opportunities as well as access to additional resources and opportunities. They are responsible for providing strategic feedback to the professional DEN Team, implementing student programming, and acting as ambassadors of the Magnuson Center on campus. Students choose committees where they focus on specific programs and organizational efforts. In addition to weekly board meetings, associates are expected to contribute 5-7 hours a week to their respective committees and/or programming. The objective is for student leaders to develop a deeper understanding of entrepreneurship while gaining leadership experience and supporting the overall mission of Dartmouth and the Magnuson Center.
