A Call to Action

In March 2014, President Hanlon issued a Call to Action to end high-risk and harmful behaviors. It began with a summit of leaders, faculty, administrators, trustees and alumni in a conversation facilitated by Dartmouth Roots, a student group working to improve Dartmouth by bridging the gap between ideas and implementation, and continued with a Presidential Steering Committee made up of students, faculty, administration and alumni. They were charged with gathering the best solutions to ending harmful behaviors in the following areas: high-risk drinking, sexual assault, and inclusivity.

  • President Hanlon's Call to Action
  • The timeline of Moving Dartmouth Forward's initial creation.
  • The steering committee, convened by President Hanlon to solicit input from the Dartmouth community, conduct research, and issue recommendations for curbing high-risk and harmful behavior.
  • The final report from the steering committee, which includes an extensive bibliography of resources used by the committee in making its recommendations.
