Last night, the Town of Hanover select board adopted a new rental housing ordinance in a four-to-one vote at its second public hearing on the matter. The ordinance gives the town the discretion to inspect a property for health and safety violations when it receives a written complaint and imposes a $200 charge for verified violations. If the owner refuses entry, the town may seek an administrative search warrant. The ordinance also requires all owners of rental property to register. Town manager Julia Griffin said the ordinance will strengthen the town's ability to inspect "problematic units." The new regulations specifically exempt Dartmouth fraternities, sororities and residence halls. The ordinance does not address occupancy levels, which one landlord at the hearing said was a major safety concern. Griffin said this issue falls under the purview of zoning regulations, not the select board. Selectman Peter Christie described the new measure as a "light" regulatory housing ordinance.

Emory University President James Wagner infuriated campus community members and scholars when he published a letter in the latest issue of Emory Magazine citing the three-fifths compromise in the Constitution as an example of people with different ideologies working together for "a common goal," Inside Higher Ed reported. Wagner described the compromise, which stipulated that black slaves counted as three-fifth of a person when allocating seats in the House of Representatives, as one of the "pragmatic half-victories" that helped bring the United States together. After discussing the current fiscal stalemate in Washington, D.C., Wagner called for compromise at Emory, which has been polarized by the administration's decision to eliminate some academic programs. Wagner released an apology on Saturday after a storm of social media criticism.

One in four campus police departments are unprepared to respond to a shooter on campus, and another 46 percent say they are understaffed, according to a recent survey by Campus Safety Magazine. Half of campus police surveyed said they do not have enough weapons, or enough training to use the weapons they do have. President Barack Obama signed 23 executive orders on Wednesday intended to curb gun violence, but few items specifically addressed safety issues related to universities, according to The Huffington Post. A directive included among the executive actions, however, does call for "model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education," The Huffington Post reported. At least three shootings have occurred on college campuses in 2013.

Ivy League universities change social policies

(01/11/13 4:00am)

Out of concern for student safety, many Ivy League universities have recently implemented changes to their alcohol policies and Greek system regulations. Like the College, several schools now limit freshman involvement in the Greek system and further regulate the drinks served at private parties, but most policies are tailored to address school-specific problems.
