Community Reports

Each year, the College prepares reports for students, faculty, staff, and families of students to review. 

Annual Security Report

 The Annual Security Report documents three calendar years of campus crime and fire statistics that occurred on-campus, in off-campus buildings or properties owned or controlled by Dartmouth College, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to campus. The Annual Security Report also includes institutional policy statements about campus security; crime prevention and education programs, including those focused on sexual assault awareness; the reporting of crimes; and other safety and security matters.

ORGANIZATIONAL ADJUDICATION COMMITTEE TERMLY OUTCOMES

Beginning fall term 2018 and going forward the Judicial Affairs Office will publish all Organizational Adjudication Committee (OAC) outcomes that resulted in a responsible finding. Instances of hazing, and investigations into hazing, will also be reported, regardless of whether an organization was found responsible.

Fall 2018

  • Sigma Phi Epsilon admitted to providing alcohol to a minor and failing to comply with the terms of its previous disciplinary sanction during the summer term 2018. Given the nature of the violation and the organization’s previous disciplinary history, the OAC Chair would have imposed a three-term suspension, effective fall, winter and spring of the 2018-2019 academic year, followed by two terms of probation with educational requirements. The sanction could not be imposed due to the revocation of the chapter’s charter by their national organization. The outcome will be noted for the record in the organization’s Judicial Affairs file.

Termly Hazing Reports

Fall Term 2012 Through Summer Term 2018

Winter 2018

  • Kappa Kappa Kappa admitted responsibility for activity occurring in Fall 2017 that violated Dartmouth’s Hazing and Alcohol policies. The organization was also found responsible for violating Dartmouth’s Other Drug policy. The organization was suspended for three terms, to be followed by four terms of alcohol probation, and then two terms of college probation. The activity came to the attention of the College through a Department of Safety and Security investigation. Note: The organization entered into a “Fresh Start” agreement in 2014.

Summer 2017

  • The Women’s Swimming and Diving Team admitted responsibility for activity occurring in Winter 2016 that violated Dartmouth’s Hazing policy.  The organization was placed on probation for four terms and required to implement a four-year team education and development plan.  The activity came to the attention of the College through the report of a member; Hanover Police Department was notified.

Winter 2015

  • The Tabard admitted responsibility for activity occurring in Spring 2014 that violated Dartmouth’s Hazing policy.  The organization was suspended for three terms.  The activity came to the attention of the College through the report of a member and was also investigated by the Hanover Police Department. Note:  The organization was also found responsible for hazing by the OAC in 2011.
  • Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s charter was revoked by their national organization.  The fraternity subsequently lost recognition by the College, but may request permission to recolonize in five years as an SAE chapter.  As the chapter is closed, an OAC case did not proceed, but the College’s investigation supported charges of hazing and other violations of Dartmouth’s Code of Conduct.  The Fall 2015 activity came to the attention of the College through an anonymous report made by an SAE brother at another institution directly to their National HQ.  The local chapter was notified as was Dartmouth.  The report was also investigated by the Hanover Police Department. Note:  In 2012, Sigma Alpha Epsilon had previously been found responsible for hazing by the Organizational Adjudication Committee for similar activities.
  • The Department of Safety & Security responded to reports of possible hazing activity at Chi Delta and Kappa Kappa Gamma presumably made by members of those organizations. The information reported was limited and further investigation did not yield sufficient information to support conduct charges.  Both organizations will be engaged with the Greek Letter Organizations and Societies Office to review their new member programs.

Spring 2015

  • Alpha Delta was found not responsible for hazing, but responsible for threatening or causing physical harm to new members in Fall 2014.  The organization was derecognized by the Organizational Adjudication Committee.  They considered the organizational history of the fraternity which included a previous finding of responsibility for hazing.  The activity was reported by a physician who had treated one of the brothers.  The activity was also invested by the Hanover Police Department.

Summer 2014

  • Beta Alpha Omega finalized a “Fresh Start” agreement with the Dean of the College.  The organization admitted to conduct that violated the College’s hazing policy and other chapter activity that caused physical injury to members over a period of time.  The activity came to the attention of the College through publication of internal chapter documents on social media. 
  • Kappa Kappa Kappa finalized “Fresh Start” agreements with the Greek Letter Organizations and Societies Office.  The organization admitted to conduct described in anonymous reports delivered to Safety & Security from brothers over a period of two years. 

Spring 2013 

  • Bones Gate entered into a Fresh Start agreement with the Greek Letter Organizations and Societies Office.  The activities of BG came to the attention of the College through the report of an alumni brother.

Fall 2012

  • Alpha Phi Alpha was found responsible for hazing by the Organizational Adjudication Committee.  They received three terms of College Probation and were not permitted to recruit new members for at least one calendar year with extensive requirements for chapter redevelopment.  The activity came to the attention of the College through the report of a brother.
