Dartmouth-WISE Agreement Brings Victims’ Advocate to Campus

A WISE advocate for students, staff, and faculty affected by dating and domestic violence, sexual violence, or stalking will begin work at Dartmouth this summer thanks to an agreement between the College and WISE, a regional advocacy and crisis services organization for those affected by domestic or sexual violence.

The WISE campus advocate will be an employee of the Lebanon, N.H.-based nonprofit and will have offices on the Dartmouth campus and at the WISE Program Center. WISE will advertise for the position and hopes to have someone in the role by July 1.

“This new position enhances and formalizes Dartmouth’s long-standing relationship with WISE and is part of the important work we’re doing as part of Moving Dartmouth Forward to create a safer and healthier campus,” says Provost Carolyn Dever.

House Professors Named to Residential Communities

Six members of the faculty have been chosen to serve as the first house professors of Dartmouth’s new model of residential life.

The house communities—a cornerstone of the Moving Dartmouth Forward plan announced by President Phil Hanlon ’77 in January—are designed to transform Dartmouth’s undergraduate residential experience, bringing more continuity to students’ on-campus living options and greater opportunity for faculty-student interactions beyond the classroom. The houses will open to students in fall 2016.
