The Hood Museum of Art offers one- and two-week residencies for Dartmouth College faculty. During these residencies, the faculty members study and research the collections for the purpose of teaching in the museum. Over thirty-five residencies have been awarded to Dartmouth faculty, and the museum has seen a marked increase in the use of its collections in the curriculum.

The museum residency program is funded through an endowment jointly created by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Dartmouth College alumni and parents.
