Gibberish Speaker Could Face Explusion

In a post today, Scott Greer of the Campus Reform blog reports that the Dartmouth student who spoke faux-Chinese to students Alice Liou and Huan He could be expelled from the College if Safety and Security officers are able to apprehend him. Greer quotes John Cramer, Dartmouth’s Associate Director for Media Relations, as saying that S&S is “on the hunt for a student who allegedly verbally harassed two students”:

The police investigation began after the victims reported the incident to the Office of Plurality and Leadership which then reported it to the Safety and Security Department.

John Cramer, Dartmouth’s Associate Director for Media Relations, told Campus Reform on Monday such speech would not be tolerated and that if the student is caught he could face expulsion.

“It is completely unacceptable for students to behave that way…ways that are completely offensive, period,” Cramer commented on the issue.

Other penalties could include a mandatory sensitivity course or a paying a fine, he said.

Dartblog has been unable to learn if Liou and He were able to give a detailed description of their harasser to S&S.

Meanwhile, in other campus news, fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha’s three-term social probation for physically beating and emotionally abusing pledge Yesuto Shaw ‘15 continues unabated.

Addendum: A longtime reader asks a good question:

The question I think needs to be asked: if Dartmouth is going to expel the perpetrator in this instance (I don’t disagree with this), why do they not automatically expel, permanently, students who rape young females, and are adjudicated guilty by COS? Why do they let a felon back on campus to harass the victim? Is verbal harassment more offensive to the College because of its sensitivity to race issues than a physical assault which results in a lifelong effect? In fact, as I understand it, the sentencing guidelines that the College produces for judicial panels exclude permanent expulsion.
