President Philip J. Hanlon ’77 told members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences that Dartmouth will work to adopt a unified policy on sexual misconduct applicable to all members of the community—faculty, staff, and students. The president’s announcement came at the fall meeting of the arts and sciences faculty, which took place Monday in Alumni Hall. “This is important work. Progress requires that as a community we are all fully engaged to move Dartmouth forward,” President Hanlon said.
