Mosley Mosies Out of Town
The exodus from OPAL continues, perhaps as a result of Charlotte Johnson hitting the road. As we mentioned the other day, Alysson Satterlund is leaving town, and Kyle and Aeriel Ashlee have departed, too, after a memorable parting shot.
Now Assistant Dean and Advisor to Black Students Dr. T.M. Mosley has told colleagues that she is exiting Hanover for points unstated. Mosley is well known to Dartblog readers: Charlotte Johnson sent her to Ghana in 2013 with another Dartmouth staffer to console the family of Ernest Amoh, a rising sophomore at Trinity University in Hartford, Connecticut, who drowned in a swimming accident at the Chieftan Inn. Ernest was the brother of Justice Amoh ‘13.
Mosley also journeyed to Hawaii this spring on the College’s dime to attend an American Counseling Association conference. Given that she’ll be leaving town soon, I can’t see how the College earned much return on that investment.
In my own business, when people don’t stay with us for at least a year after they attend a conference, they get to pay for half the cost of attending the event. Not so at the College, I guess.

When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

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…
