Wanted: A New Director of Undergraduate Judicial Affairs
April Thompson. Kate Burke. There is no person more disdained by students than the Director of Undergraduate Judicial Affairs — except, maybe, Charlotte Johnson, but she’s had to work at it. Here’s to hoping that the next head of the UJA Star Chamber will be three or four cuts above past folks:
Dartmouth College invites nominations and applications for the Director of Judicial Affairs. Overseeing the department charged with administration of the College’s undergraduate disciplinary system for individual and organizational accountability, the Director will collaborate with disciplinary committee Chairs, faculty, student affairs staff and other campus partners in promoting positive citizenship, awareness of community standards and understanding of College disciplinary procedures. The Director is responsible for the investigation and disposition of complaints and information concerning possible Standards of Conduct and Academic Honor Principle violations, and for implementing all aspects of the disciplinary process as set forth in the College’s Student Handbook.
Compensation: A salary in the PDL B range of $58,400-$99,400, plus a 9% pension benefit, five weeks of vacation, a Cadillac healthcare plan at low cost, and the pleasure of beating up on kids who aren’t allowed to be assisted by counsel.

Fare Thee Well, Tom Crady
And now Dean Tom Crady has precipitously announced his departure from the College after only 20 months on the job. How to read this? By way of background, prior to coming to Dartmouth, Crady had…

Kangaroo Court, Indeed
In an interview with The Dartmouth, alumni-elected trustee T.J. Rodgers ‘70 explained his reasons for declining to participate in future evaluations of trustees up for “re-election,” namely the “kangaroo court” nature of such discussion in…
