A Couple of New Hires

Denise Anthony.jpgThe Provost’s office has announced that Sociology Professor Denise Anthony has been named Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives. Despite her ill-fated role as head of the Kim/Folt Strategic Plan committee, she has a solid reputation among serious members of the faculty. We’ll give her a bye regarding the StratPlan expperience, directed as she was by two scoundrels about whom the less is said, the better. (But I’ll bet that Denise has some good stories to tell.)

Andrew Davidson.jpgAndrew Davidson will begin as the College’s vice president for development at the end of the year. He is currently Assistant Dean for Resource Development and Alumni Relations at Harvard University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. At the College, among other responsibilities, he’ll be running Dartmouth College Fund (Dartmouth’s annual fund), which is a very large component of Development — in fact more people work for the DCF than in major gifts and principal gifts. Davidson has never run an annual fund like the DCF — not an encouraging sign.

Phil’s team continues to hire well, but Development is struggling.

    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

    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…
