Dorsett Fellowship Lecture Series

The Dorsett Fellowship was established in 2001 when the Frederick Gardner Cottrell Foundation, in conjunction with Research Corporation Technologies, made a significant donation in honor of Burt Dorsett ’53, establishing an endowed fund.

The purpose of the Dorsett fund is to honor the exemplary business career of Burt Dorsett by bringing practitioners of ethics (business leaders, physicians, engineers, etc.) and/or scholars of ethics to the Dartmouth campus. The Dorsett Fellows have provided public lectures, conducted guest lectures in college courses, participated in faculty working groups, and spent time pursuing their own research while on campus.
