Q&A with Dean of the College Kathryn Lively

September 11, 2020 2:40am

Dean of the College Kathryn Lively has been the face of College communications to students about academic plans for the fall and other pandemic-related policies. She is known in part among students as the administrator whose campus emails have compared the flow of time to “cold maple syrup” and imparted the memorable words of wisdom “Kathryn … she is your experience.” Lively is also the administrator most connected to student life, meeting regularly with a number of student-run and student-oriented organizations. The Dartmouth sat down with Lively to discuss College policies for the fall, student communities and local wildlife. 

Economics professor Marjorie Rose told The Dartmouth about teaching in person this fall and how she has weathered the pandemic.
