Over the last nine weeks, we have been deeply engaged in learning more about extreme behavior at Dartmouth as it manifests itself in three troubling arenas: high-risk drinking, sexual assault, and lack of inclusivity. This has been and continues to be a multi-faceted learning experience. We have solicited feedback from numerous students individually and in groups. We have hosted faculty summits and lunches. We have met with staff from all areas of the college. And we have and will continue to reach out to alumni groups around the country this summer.
