Dartmouth: “The Rape School”
Time Magazine, like today’s D, has devoted a great deal of its current issue to the question of sexual assault on campus. The issue contains columns from the Vice-President of the United States, a Senator, scholars, journalists, rape survivors, pressure group directors, attorneys, law professors, and one college president — only one. Guess who? Phil Hanlon ‘77. The President of Dartmouth College. The school that is always mentioned first when the subject of rape comes up.
There is no question that Phil’s unceasing PR efforts are going to cement in the mind of the public that Dartmouth is a leader in the fight against sexual violence on campus — because Dartmouth has such an extreme problem with sexual violence on campus.
The College’s PR guys must not be getting much sleep these days. I can’t believe that Phil is taking much professional advice in his campaign to ruin Dartmouth’s reputation.

D Afraid of a Little Competish
So our colleague and Dartblog writer Joe Asch informed me that the D has rejected our cunning advertising campaign. Uh-oh. The Dartmouth is widely known as a breeding ground for instant New York Times successes,…

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…
