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.

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…
