Godspeed Paul Danos
Dean of the Tuck School Paul Danos has announced that he will step down from his post on June 30, 2015. On that date, he will have been Tuck’s Dean for twenty years. Here is the Tuck announcement, Danos’ letter, and Phil Hanlon’s missive to the College community. This space has commented on Danos extensively: he would have made a great IP (in fact, he accepted the job, then reconsidered, and turned the position down the next day) and President; he has kept Tuck’s administration lean, and it is growing much more slowly than the bureaucracy at the College; Tuck’s alumni have a higher giving rate than any other B-school, and by a long way; and the market handsomely compensates Tuck’s alumni.
In short, as we have explicitly said, Tuck has become what Dartmouth once was, and could be again. Good job, Paul.

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…
