While a recent analysis conducted by the American Association of University Professors concluded that nationwide tenure-track faculty hold a minority of positions at universities, Dean of Faculty Carol Folt says that the number of tenure-track positions at Dartmouth is actually increasing.
In the 1970s, only 43 percent of professors nationwide held adjunct positions -- either part-time positions or full-time positions without tenure.
In 1995, a New Hampshire court threw out a lawsuit that attempted to block the College from moving forward with proposed changes to its governance system.

Kate Schaefer, a West Lebanon resident who lived in Hanover for 20 years, was one of many loyal fans to line up each week at the Norwich Farmer's Market in hopes of snagging just one of the Umpleby's Bakery meat pies that she describes as "incredible."
With the opening of Umpleby's Bakery and Cafe at its new Hanover location on 3 South St.
As the first-ever term of gender-neutral housing at Dartmouth comes to a close, the Office of Residential Life has begun to look back at its newly instituted gender-neutral housing program floor and, based on positive feedback, does not foresee a need to make any significant changes in the coming terms.
Out of the 32 students who applied for this special housing, 16 students and one undergraduate advisor were eventually chosen because they showed an active interest in participating in the model of a shared community which would hold programs and dinners focused on discussing gender-related issues.
Assistant Dean of Student Life and advisor to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender students Pam Misener has taken the position as lead advisor for the students living on the floor, and attends the floor's weekly Sunday dinners.
"We really wanted the residents to have a chance to be engaged in the decisions about how we would organize ourselves, so it took a little longer to really hit a rhythm," Misener said.
For many of the socially-inclined, hangovers are a fact of life. The bigger the night, the more likely you are going to be curled in a fetal position the next day, swearing to yourself that you will never drink again -- or at least not until Wednesday.
To ease the pain of hangovers, it is necessary to separate the facts from the myths.
Urggghhh. Your alarm goes off. Or maybe your alarm doesn't go off, because you never made it back to your room.
'Twas the night before deadline, and inside Maggie's head,
No Mirror column was stirring as she lay in bed.
The Blue Zoo was still, not a sound left to hear,
(For her housemates were out drinking box wine and beer).
And I thought, "By next week, they will all be a-hating!
Their good times replaced by the stress and berating!"
The deadlines and essays will drive us each mad,
Not a soul will remember the ventures we've had.
I sat up with a start, for my mission was clear:
To create a verse that will rival King Lear.
So take a quick minute from work (or from brew),
And please let me present you: THE TERM IN REVIEW.
In SEPTEMBER trustees had some scandal in store,
Full-page ads in the Times led alums into war.
The Board doubled its size without coming to blows,
Though the temperature amongst our trustees surely rose.
On campus, new freshmen joined us here in frat heaven;
Like Spinal Tap, Dartmouth now "goes up to '11."
The first day of class brought the Dem candidates,
Though few of us won tickets to see the big debates.
Some spent days and long nights helping out on campaigns,
(Others stood on Main Street gawking at Robert Haines).
In the end, the debate rendered no clear first places,
And fast as they came, they went back to the races.
And some happenings happened in the press, of course:
French President Sarkozy and his wife got divorced.
Al Gore won himself half of a Nobel Peace Prize
For he tried to save us from the climate's demise.
OCTOBER made many a-sophomore girl blush
When they schmoozed for a week with the big kids at rush.
Until late in the night, we delibed and we sorted,
'Cross campus, faint echoes of "DING" were reported.
Yet, all's well that ends well, and after the strife
A new class was ushered into the Greek life.
Come the end of the month, Halloween came and went,
In costume choice, "less is more" was ever evident.
October was host to a Dartmouth homecoming,
Alums all returned for some skeeving and slumming.
Legalized field-rush made that old custom lame,
No brave soul touched the fire, 'twas really a shame.
All were shocked (bit unnerved?) when the football team won,
And too soon, the big weekend was over and done.
In Calif., heat and drought led to massive wildfire,
They raged on for three weeks, the whole country perspired.
More unrest was afoot, this time far to the East --
In Burma, monk's protests were forcedly peace-d.
What began as a modest call for retribution
Grew to what has been dubbed the "Saffron Revolution."
All of Burma was blocked out from using e-mail,
And some guess that 6,000 still linger in jail.
Lastly, one obit (promise, there won't be too many),
We said "farewell" to James Bond's Miss Moneypenney.
NOVEMBER was over as fast as it came,
The month rumors of roofies were launched into fame.
Philanthropists flocked to a talk from Paul Farmer,
(He's everyone's favorite disease-fighting charmer).
This week witnessed a nightmare of a PR bomb --
Ole' Trustee Zywicki was called out on YouTube.com.
He coined late President Freedman a "truly evil man"?
This cannot be the most graceful alumni game plan.
Their injunction was moot, so they filed a case,
These alumni are serious about the trustee race.
No one saw it coming.
The fall of 2007 was routine: certain alumni got their ("this-College-was-once-free-of-") panties in a bunch, prompting certain other alumni to leap instantly down to their level and slap right back, only a little harder.
Book: "Twilight" by Stephanie Meyer
Romance will never look the same after you've devoured Twilight, Stephenie Meyer's deliciously sappy young adult novel about a human girl who falls in love with a vampire.
'09 girl: I told my trippees they'd get gonorrhea if they didn't filter their water.
Croo Member: Yeah!

Sometimes when you listen to music, you've just got to laugh.
Like when Britney Spears declares, "It's Britney, bitch" in the opening line of her latest hit "Gimme More," it's impossible not to crack a smile.
Thump, thump, thump. No one plans to wake up with a pounding head, but we all know that it happens.
Dean Crady, Fall term is ending and you are about to assume one of the most unique and challenging positions in academia.
"The people of Iowa pick corn, the people of New Hampshire pick presidents," said then-Gov. John H.
With a frustrating loss to the University of Vermont last week, Dartmouth's men's soccer team was bumped out of the NCAA tournament and officially ended the season.
"We were very disappointed in the tournament, but overall this season we have a lot to be proud of for what we achieved," said Head Coach Jeff Cook.
With the end of the season, the team bids farewell to its seniors and begins looking ahead towards next year.
Dartmouth's 11-4-3 season (5-1-1 Ivy League) marks the end of several soccer careers; the men's team will graduate a number of members this year, many of whom were starters.
"We had six seniors and the majority of them played big roles," Pumi Maqubela '10 said.
Of the players that will not be returning next year, two of the most notable are defenders Ale Frischeisen '08 and To Lobben '08, who led Dartmouth's notoriously tight back line.

On Wednesday, the squash courts at the Berry Sports Center had an atmosphere generally reserved for Thompson Arena: Rambunctious fans were on hand cheering on the Big Green men's and women's squash teams for their showdown against perennial powerhouse Harvard.
