On January 29, President Hanlon issued a plan for Moving Dartmouth Forward. This was the culmination of a process that began in April 2014 when President Hanlon convened a summit in which he challenged the Dartmouth community to come together to end high-risk and harmful behavior on campus. In May, he formed a presidential steering committee and charged its members with gathering feedback from students, alumni, faculty and staff, studying best practices of peer institutions and consulting with experts. He asked the Committee to use this information in formulating recommendations to end sexual assault and high-risk drinking on campus and to increase inclusivity. The committee submitted the Presidential Steering Committee’s Final Report to President Hanlon in January. On January 29, President Hanlon addressed the Dartmouth community and released his plan of action.
