Combating Sexual Assault Is Focus of ‘Campus Conversation’



The next “Moving Dartmouth Forward” community discussion, set for Tuesday, April 22, will explore ways to combat sexual assault at Dartmouth, a topic President Phil Hanlon ’77 identified as an urgent priority when he spoke before a summit of students, trustees, alumni, and staff last week.

The session, the sixth “Campus Conversation” in the series, will be led by Dartmouth’s General Counsel Robert Donin, Dean of the College Charlotte Johnson, and Director of the Office of Undergraduate Judicial Affairs Leigh Remy.

The first session will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in the auditorium of the Hood Museum of Art, located on the lower level of the museum. The second session will take place at an earlier time from the other programs—5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Fahey lounge.

The noontime session will also be webcast live on the College YouTube channel and members of the community are invited to continue the conversation through the Improve Dartmouth website.

The “Moving Dartmouth Forward: Campus Conversations” series is designed to give community members an opportunity to discuss ideas related to the initiatives of President Phil Hanlon ’77, to generate new ideas, and to advance implementation of the president’s plans to ensure that Dartmouth remains the premiere undergraduate teaching institution while deepening the impact of its scholarship nationally and internationally.

The “Campus Conversations" will continue into the spring; each session takes place from noon to 1 p.m., and again from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Below is the current schedule of the sessions, with presenters for each one.
