Hazing issue ensnares Dartmouth president
Student’s account shakes campus
When Jim Kim started as Dartmouth College president in 2009, he seemed like the university’s best hope for improving its alcohol-soaked culture without enraging Greek alumni and trustees. But a student’s graphic allegations of fraternity hazing have roiled the campus. Faculty are demanding Kim kick fraternities off campus, a move he said would accomplish little while provoking ridicule. The school has charged the fraternity with violating its conduct code. Sources say the accuser has also been charged individually.
