The East Wheelock Fire

Oct 1 2016

A four-alarm fire has rendered the Morton dormitory in the East Wheelock cluster uninhabitable:

Wheelock Fire.jpg

There has been some talk of students using a grill on the roof of the dorm, but no confirmation of this assertion has been issued.

It was quite a fire, as e-mail communications from the College show:

From: "Frank A. Roberts"
Date: October 1, 2016 at 2:20:51 AM EDT
To: All Students:;, All Faculty:;, All Staff:;
Subject: Fire on Campus - Morton Hall

Dear Campus Community,

Approximately, at 12:07 am Saturday, a fire started in Morton Hall. HFD and other local fire departments have responded. At this time, there are no reported injuries and the fire is not yet considered contained or under control.

Please avoid this area as to not interfere with emergency responders. Again, at this time there are no reported injuries.

We will issue another update as we have further information.

From: "Frank A. Roberts"

To: All Students:;, All Faculty:;, All Staff:;
Subject: Morton Hall Fire Update

Dear Campus Community,

As of this point, Hanover Fire Department considers the fire under control and extinguished. They are checking for any remaining hot spots in the roof structure and are occasionally putting water on the fire.

At this point, there are still no reported injuries to Dartmouth students or staff.

Updates will be posted on the Dartmouth homepage later this morning.

Frank Roberts
Associate Vice President, Facilities Operations and Management

Addendum: The D is reporting on the story, and it has a video of the firefighting efforts. A separate piece notes that the College is scrambling to find housing for the 67 students previously resident in Morton.

Stephon Alexander Charges Dropped

Oct 1 2016

All charges that had been previously leveled at former Dartmouth physics professor Stephon Alexander, after he was arrested in December 2015 along with seven other Rhode Island men in a prostitution sting, have been dropped, according to the Brown Daily Herald:

Stephon Alexander Charges Dropped Comp.jpg

Addendum: The Herald article cited Andrew Horwitz, professor at the Roger Williams University School of Law, as saying he did not expect Brown to discipline Alexander in any way because of the incident:

"Unless one could establish some connection between the alleged conduct and somebody's qualifications to be a faculty member," retributions are unwarranted. "I personally don't see any connection whatsoever between (the prostitution case) and somebody's qualifications to be an effective faculty member."

If that analysis is correct, Alexander should be free to begin teaching Brown undergraduates right away.

JHU Manipulates U.S. News Rankings

Oct 1 2016

Oh dastardly dastardly trickery. Johns Hopkins is manipulating its U.S. News ranking by the devious means of placing an increased emphasis on undergraduate education:

The next thing that the devious folks in beautiful Baltimore might do is further increase their faculty members' commitment to undergraduate teaching. It seems that the JHU administration will stop at nothing.

How lucky Dartmouth is to have a leader who will not succumb to such low temptation. No cleverness like that from Phil Hanlon, no dorm renovations nor support of the faculty, not when there are energy institutes to be built and a bloated staff to support.

Addendum: Do you think that The Johns Hopkins Environment, Energy, Sustainability, and Health Institute (E²SHI) is the reason for JHU's rise in the rankings? I don't. It has existed since 2010.

Addendum: In the most recent Times of London World University Rankings (2016-2017), JHU finished 17th. Harvard was #6; Princeton #7; Yale #12; Penn #13; Columbia #16; Cornell #19; Borwn #51; and Dartmouth #82 (up from #104 last year).

Addendum: JHU lays out its efforts to improve its undergraduate program here

Academically, undergraduates now have more opportunities to engage with their professors, thanks to smaller classes--nearly three-quarters of undergraduate classes have fewer than 20 students--and exposure to the university's Bloomberg Distinguished Professors, world-class interdisciplinary scholars who teach undergraduates as part of their cross-specialty collaborations.

Outside the classroom, nearly two-thirds of Hopkins undergraduates conduct hands-on research in a variety of disciplines, from archaeology to microbiology, computer science to economics. Johns Hopkins students work with professors on faculty-led research projects and receive support for their own original research through a number of undergraduate research funding opportunities.

Johns Hopkins' commitment to undergraduate education has led to new and innovative academic offerings, including a recently created option that gives applicants the opportunity to be simultaneously admitted to both the undergraduate program and to a master's program at JHU's renowned Bloomberg School of Public Health or its School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, D.C.

The Johns Hopkins undergraduate experience is also becoming more accessible thanks to an institutional commitment to access, reflected in the university's financial aid program. The past five first-year classes have been admitted to Johns Hopkins on a need-blind basis, allowing the university to admit excellent students without regard to their families' ability to pay. Nearly 50 percent of all undergraduate students receive aid, and the average grant is almost $40,000. Institutional grant aid for undergraduates has increased 45 percent over the past six years.

Undergraduates have a new near-campus residential option this year with the opening of Nine East 33rd, a privately developed project on university-owned property. And the university career center has adopted a new service model designed to better serve the needs of both students and potential employers.
