kimVideo: Dartmouth community welcomes President Jim Yong Kim

President Kim spent his first days on the job meeting thousands of members of the Dartmouth community.

"I'm going to work hard to convince you that every single one of you can change the world, and indeed, must change the world and make it a better place," Kim said at a July 1 Community Welcome on the Green (photo right).

Other events over the course of two days included three receptions with faculty, visits to classrooms and laboratories, and a tour of the athletic facilities with coaches and students (photo right, below).
