Students gather for community dinner

Administrators brought concerns about decision-making and student-administrator relationships to the Programming Board's third Community Dinner last night in the Collis Common Ground In keeping with the dinner's theme of decision-making, nine administrators brought problems to the podium seeking student input. Among the administrators present were Dean of the College Lee Pelton, Director of College Dining Services Peter Napolitano and Director of Career Services Skip Sturman. Summer Programming Board co-Chair Karen Lefrak '98, who organized the dinner with Associate Director of Student Activities Linda Kennedy, said, "The purpose of the dinner was to bring together students and administrators in a setting where they don't ordinarily get to interact and foster discussion between the two groups." Some of the topics that students and administrators discussed over dinner were self-segregation of groups on campus, the sense of community at Dartmouth, social space and programming and the role of mediation at the College. The dinner was open to all students for a two dollar charge and about 40 students attended. Focusing on relationships between administrators and students, Pelton spoke informally for 15 minutes before the dinner. "The purpose of the dinner was to create an opportunity for interested students and administrators to make a better community," he said. The job of an administrator is to "provide care for the long-term welfare of the institution." Pelton went on to make some observations about relations between administrators and students. "Not all decisions administrators make require input from students," Pelton said.
