Mosley Goes Hawaii
I think I know who Charlotte Johnson’s special pet is: Dr. Tiffany Mosley, an Assistant Dean and member of the Office of Black Student Advising. The other day, we reported how Mosley (pictured immediately below) and another OPAL staff member had flown to Ghana to console the family of a Dartmouth undergrad whose brother had drowned in the Connecticut. Well, it seems that Mosley was on the road again recently in the service of the College, this time to travel to Hawaii for a conference put on by the American Counseling Association that took place from March 27-30 (it is not clear whether Mosley attended the Pre-Conference Learning Institutes on March 26 - March 27):
Mosley gave up being in Hanover during the snow storms, and the College gave up many thousands of dollars. Way to go, Charlotte!
It seems that Mosley gets to go on all the fun trips, whether she is needed or not. Last November she went on a four-day-long visit to Spelman and Morehouse Colleges, traveling with Paul Buckley, assistant dean of undergraduate students, and a Fellow at Dartmouth’s cutting edge Gender Research Institute. The idea was to ensure a solid connection for the exchange program between the two historically black schools and the College (this program is not an FSP; no Dartmouth faculty are involved). While it makes sense for Buckley to go on the trip — he is one of the deans in charge of academic advising — why did Mosley go? Why send two administrators such a distance, especially when Mosley is not an academic dean?

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…

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…
