On March 15, Emily Fagell ’25 and Eren Berke Saglam ’25 will take on the roles of Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of The Dartmouth to head the paper’s 181st Directorate. They will replace outgoing Editor-in-Chief Kristin Chapman ’24 and Publisher Manasi Singh ’24, respectively.

Fagell is an English major and government minor from Bethesda, Md. She began writing for the news section of The Dartmouth in her freshman fall and served as a news associate managing editor in her freshman spring. She edited the Freshman special issue in her sophomore fall and served as an associate news executive news editor in her sophomore winter. Most recently, Fagell was a news managing editor in her sophomore spring.

Berke Salgam is a computer science and economics double major with a minor in human-centered design. He is from Turkey, which makes him the first international Publisher of The Dartmouth in many years, he said. He joined The Dartmouth in the winter of his freshman year as an analyst for the finance and sales team. Berke Salgam has been the finance and sales director since his sophomore spring. 

During her time as EIC, Fagell hopes to accomplish what she calls the “three C’s”: cohesion, community and coverage. She hopes to build community and cohesion across the paper as a whole and within the individual sections. 

“With that cohesion, not only will our community be stronger, but our reporting will be bolstered as well,” Fagell said. “We’ll get better coverage — more nuanced, more informed, more hard-hitting coverage — with all hands on deck.”

Fagell also said she hopes to create more training sessions, both mandatory and supplemental. These trainings will ensure that new writers are prepared and confident for their first articles, notwithstanding any prior journalism experience. 

Berke Salgam said he is committed to bolstering the financial stability of The Dartmouth during his time as Publisher and will keep close track of how and where funds are being spent. 

Berke Salgam also said he hopes the paper will facilitate “difficult conversations” in the upcoming year and amplify marginalized voices. Another one of Berke Salgam’s goals is to create and strengthen connections between alumni of The Dartmouth and its current staff and editors so that current staff can “learn from their expertise.”
