Statement by Ed Haldeman, Chairman, Dartmouth Board of Trustees

Dartmouth College Office of Public Affairs • Press Release
Posted 12/20/07 • Roland Adams • (603) 646-3661

Just as there are varying views among alumni about Dartmouth's governance, it is natural and healthy for there to be varying views among trustees as well. The appropriate place to resolve those differences, however, is in the board room through the Board's deliberations and governance. It is counterproductive and harmful to Dartmouth and its students for trustees who disagree with decisions made by a majority of the Board to resort to the courts in an attempt to overrule those decisions. The amicus brief filed by trustees focuses primarily on disagreements over a board decision and contains very little legal discussion of any kind. The Board remains confident that there is no legal merit whatsoever to the suit filed against the College, and the Board is equally confident that the College's position will ultimately be upheld.

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
