Dartmouth on track in implementing changes

The Associated Press

CONCORD — An outside review panel says Dartmouth College is on track in implementing an ambitious plan to overhaul its campus culture, and college officials say students are playing a significant role.

President Philip Hanlon announced a series of reforms in January aimed at addressing problems he said were "hijacking" the Ivy League school's promise: high-risk drinking, sexual assault and a lack of inclusion.

The changes include a ban on hard liquor, the creation of new residential communities and the development of a mandatory, four-year sexual violence prevention curriculum.

A panel appointed to hold the school accountable recently submitted its first report, concluding that while it is too early to evaluate the plan's impact on campus, the college has implemented or is making "admirable progress" toward implementing each of the elements.
