Love the Faculty; Not the Administration
The D conducted a Senior Survey again this year. Here’s the statistical info:
From Sunday, May 28 to Saturday, June 3, The Dartmouth fielded an online survey of Dartmouth senior students on their opinions and experiences at the school. The survey was sent out to 1,084 seniors through their school email addresses. 261 responses were recorded, making for a 24.1 percent response rate. Using administrative data from the College’s Office of Institutional Research, responses were weighted by gender, Greek affiliation, race/ethnicity and international student status. Iterative post-stratification (raking) was the method used for weighting. Survey results have a margin of error +/- 5.29.
Let’s look at the seniors’ sense of Dartmouth:
Just in case you are wondering about the much loved faculty to which the survey refers, it’s the one that is underpaid relative to its peers, has no parking advantages vis à vis janitors and administrative assistants, and believes that President Phil Hanlon thinks that the College’s professors are a bunch of second-raters.
A more interesting question is, “What do the members of the faculty think of Phil?”

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…
