Student finds hate symbol drawn on her dorm room message board
Melanie Klein, a 20th-century psychological theorist, changed her field with the conception of the mother as the central authority figure in a person's upbringing, New School for Social Research history professor Eli Zaretsky argued yesterday. Speaking in front of a small gathering of students and scholars, including historians and psychologists, Zaretsky presented a lecture entitled "War, Women and Psychoanalysis: The Case of Melanie Klein." Klein was born in Vienna and was strongly influenced by Sigmund Freud's close associates.
The College is working to provide support for the latest Apple and Microsoft operating systems, though their efforts are complicated by incompatibility with Dartmouth's proprietary software. "The big issue for Windows XP and OS X is that there is some software we need for our network that doesn't run on them," said Bill Brawley, Director of Communications Services.
In a press conference yesterday, University of Southern Florida professor Sami Al-Arian said he would fight the dismissal being brought against him due to suspected terrorist links. "I am not the culprit here," Al-Arian, a Palestinian and local Muslim community leader, said at the afternoon news conference, where representatives of national Muslim groups and civil rights organizations rallied around him. USF President Judy Genshaft fired Al-Arian, a tenured computer science professor, on Dec.
"Green printing," an effort by the Purchasing Advisory Committee and Computing Services to reduce waste, will soon debut at the Berry printing window. Last year, between 25 and 40 percent of documents were printed but never retrieved from public printers. "The new strategy is designed to fix a system with inherent problems," said Mike Hogan, Operations Manager of Computing Services. Students will direct documents to a campus-wide queue and will now have to use a password to print documents in person from one of several "release stations." "Dartmouth is one of the last colleges not to charge for public printing," Hogan said.
Colleagues remember Dartmouth radio physics expert as 'a real gentleman'
If one lesson can be drawn from studying the mission statements of other colleges, it is that there is no single lesson. Some universities' mission statements are jumbles of big words, seemingly remote from modern sensibilities.
While campus cultural organizations welcome the prospect of altering Dartmouth's mission statement to emphasize diversity, they hope that the revision will have a practical implication and not simply a symbolic one. "I think that changing the mission statement of the College can be very powerful," Jeff Garrett '02, an executive board member of MOSAIC, said. Many of the organizations contacted by The Dartmouth echoed Garrett's statement about the importance of the gesture. "I think it's a step in making the College promise that the creation of such an atmosphere is one of the College's goals," Reiko Imai '03, president of the Dartmouth Japan Society, said. Imai, however, was quick to add, "I hope that it will become a reality and not just something stated in words on paper." Many cultural groups question the College's resolve to make the recommended changes. "I look forward to seeing the Student Life Initiative follow through with this change and implement policies, programs and other initiatives," Jackson Lee '04, president of the Dartmouth Chinese Cultural Society, said. "This sort of rhetoric about Dartmouth welcoming diversity and flaunting it in our brochures, [is] not an accurate picture ... diversity is emphasized as a recruitment thing and then once they're here, how satisfying of an experience is it?" Garrett asked. In explaining the need to amend the mission statement, the Committee on Institutional Diversity and Equity cited a 1998 Dartmouth survey that found that 20 percent of the student body reported feeling rejected by students whose racial or ethnic background differed from their own.
What do mission statements do? Never an easy question to answer, most education experts agree that mission statements should conform to one basic philosophy: they should set goals for institutions and serve as a yardstick for measuring their performance. But the consensus stops there. While some in higher education argue strongly that mission statements should never undergo revision -- no matter how the world around them changes -- others believe that colleges and universities should use them to articulate new and evolving objectives. Perhaps the single greatest dilemma that authors of mission statements face is how to capture and guide complicated institutions in a few hundred words.
From promoting the education of Native Americans to stressing the love of learning in everyday life, Dartmouth's mission statements and proto-mission statements offer telling windows into the College's changing face throughout its more than 200-year history. Signed by King George III of England on December 13, 1769, the Dartmouth College Charter was the first document associated with the institution and, despite predating the modern concept of a mission statement, fulfilled the same goal-setting objectives. The charter characterizes the premises behind the new institution as "the laudable and charitable design of spreading Christian knowledge among the savages of our American wilderness" and "civilizing and Christianizing children of pagans." Though the charter corresponds with the myth of its author Eleazar Wheelock's dream of bringing liberal education, "civilization" and Scripture to Native Americans, Wheelock had given up on Christianizing Native Americans before he even penned the document, according to history professor Jere Daniell, who has written considerably on the history of the College. "Funds were only available for him for education of Native Americans, so he pretended," Daniell said. In fact, Wheelock never made much of an effort to conceal his non-interest in educating the Native American population.
Dartmouth College combines the best features of the undergraduate liberal arts college with those of the research university.
Six months after College President James Wright responded to a diversity committee's recommendation to change Dartmouth's mission statement, the President's Office plans to premiere a new College statement within the next few weeks. The new mission statement will seek to eliminate what the Committee on Institutional Diversity and Equity said was a "laissez-faire" attitude in Dartmouth's commitment to diversity. While the Committee did not craft specific new language for the mission statement, it did make several recommendations for changes, most focusing on increasing interaction between students of different backgrounds. The current mission statement -- with its emphasis on fostering a "love of learning" -- says little in the way of diversity.
This Friday marks the beginning of the College's nine-day celebration of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
"The decade after the Cold War was a time of trivial pursuits," Pulitzer prize-winning journalist David Halberstam told a packed crowd in Filene Auditorium last night. The renowned author of "The Best and the Brightest," which chronicled the debacle of American foreign policy during the Vietnam era, Halberstam spoke on the dramatic changes in U.S.
In an rare BlitzMail vote held last night, Student Assembly passed a resolution condemning last weekend's incident in which a swastika was discovered drawn on a student's door. The departure of several voting members over the course of last night's weekly meeting -- which conflicted with many members' Greek rush activities -- denied the Assembly a quorum and necessitated an electronic vote afterwards. The resolution condemned "any act of bigotry or hatred" and was passed following a lengthy session of debate in which members -- as well as a number of nonmember visitors -- discussed the proper response to the Jan.
Carl Burnett '03 is spending an "off" term in Colorado this winter, but he is hardly relaxing -- he's training for the 2002 Winter Paralympic Games, to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah. Burnett will participate as part of the U.S.
Before describing his experience helping those fleeing the Afghan civil war in the mid-1980s last night, Jeral Ahtone DMS '75 related his innovative method for medically examing refugees. Under time and resource constrictions as an immigrations medical officer, Ahtone stopped the escalators at a Washington immigration checkpoint to identify ailing refugees entering the United States, forcing them to climb the stairs. "The ones that didn't make it, we picked out," Ahtone said. Managing the heath situation of Afghan refugees in Pakistan, though, proved a bit more complex for Ahtone, who worked for the United Nations High Commissioners for Disease in 1985-86. Many logistical issues unusual in developed nations undermined Ahtone and his colleagues' efforts to serve 1.5 million refugees, including the generally easily alleviated problem of equipment failures. "We could get money for tuberculosis prevention, but nobody would give us money for maintenance," Ahtone said.
Members of "Shamis," a new student organization founded to address the needs of Arab and Arab-Americans on campus, hope to promote awareness of Arab culture and end what they formerly saw as the conspicuous absence of an Arab group on campus. According to Malik Mehr Ali '04, Shamis vice-president, the need for an Arab organization has existed at Dartmouth for years, but became more apparent after the events of Sept.
Ending four years of costly litigation, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the city of Lebanon last week announced a tentative agreement that will settle their long-standing tax dispute. The disagreement started in March 1998 when Lebanon revoked the DHMC's tax exemption and served them with a notice stating that property taxes were due immediately.
NORTH HAVERHILL, N.H. -- Robert Tulloch stood straight-faced and silent at his arraignment yesterday as Richard Guerriero, his attorney, entered an innocent plea on his behalf to two alternate charges of first degree murder in the deaths of Half and Suzanne Zantop. Lawyers for both Tulloch and the state also gave arguments on motions related to a number of evidentiary issues on which the judge will rule in the coming weeks. Although he did not speak during the proceedings at the Grafton County Superior Court, Tulloch appeared engaged, leaning over several times to make comments or perhaps ask questions of Guerriero during the prosecution's testimony. The charges heard yesterday -- the second set of indictments to be brought against Tulloch -- allege that the Vermont teenager knowingly killed the Zantops in the course of an armed burglary. As such, yesterday's charges also represent the first formal motive offered by prosecutors in the stabbing deaths of the two Dartmouth professors last January. Under the first set of charges, prosecutors must prove that Tulloch purposely killed the Zantops and his actions were premeditated and deliberate.
