Dartmouth president to address plan to tackle campus issues
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - The president of Dartmouth College is announcing his plan to address sexual assault, high-risk drinking and a lack of inclusivity on the Ivy League campus.
Philip Hanlon, who has led Dartmouth since mid-2013, created a "Moving Dartmouth Forward" steering committee last April to study the problems he said were compromising the school's core mission. The committee recently submitted its report to Hanlon, who will deliver his response to students, faculty and staff Thursday morning.
Dartmouth received nationwide attention for allegations of fraternity hazing several years ago, and it's one of 95 schools currently under federal investigation for its handling of sexual harassment and violence. Last spring, students protested at Hanlon's office with a long list of demands for creating a more inclusive, diverse campus.
