The first time I heard them, I accepted them at face value, in part because of general pessimistic attitudes towards Dartmouth administration, but also because of the College’s history of lackluster climate action. Believing them only strengthened my pessimism about Dartmouth’s potential for change. The reality of Dartmouth’s sustainability progress is much more complicated, but it feels easy to believe the single, simple story of institutional letdown.

Ah, fall at Dartmouth.

The lesson highlights how Hanlon was able to overcome self-doubt and become a “transformative” leader, Pease said.
