Brown: The Demise of a Mission

(10/17/14 12:46am)

When then-College President John Dickey established the Tucker Foundation in 1951, he believed that liberal arts colleges like Dartmouth had a dual mission, to nurture both competence and conscience. He did not worry about the first half of that mission: “the appetite of self-interest,” he said, would ensure that students would pursue a path to competence. Conscience was another matter. Dickey believed that a good education required explicit attention to ethical and moral values. “To create the power of competence,” he wrote, “without creating a corresponding sense of moral direction to guide the use of that power is bad education.” Or as an early Dartmouth trustee, John Phillips, observed, “Goodness without knowledge ... is weak and feeble, yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous.” In July, Dartmouth announced that it would dismantle the Tucker Foundation, a change that makes the search for conscience, meaning and purpose more difficult at Dartmouth.

Brooks: A Misplaced Emphasis

(10/15/14 10:24pm)

The presidential steering committee will soon release its proposals on a multitude of issues, including high risk drinking, to the trustees. High-risk drinking is usually mentioned in the same breath as the fraternities, and, it seems clear that the College believes the Greek system contributes disproportionately to high-risk drinking. However, the constant focus on Greek houses ignores the other areas where high-risk drinking is occurring and could produce some unintended consequences.
