Alumni Pressure Dartmouth Over Handling of Sex Abuse Claims



    3 Dartmouth Professors Accused of Sexual Misconduct

    New Hampshire AG office and state police are investigating allegations

    (Published Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017)

    There is growing anger among Dartmouth College alumni following allegations in a lawsuit that three professors harassed and abused female students in their department for years without being sanctioned.

    The federal lawsuit filed this month alleges that William Kelley, Paul Whalen and Todd Heatherton harassed and touched women inappropriately, often while out partying at bars or at their homes.

    The professors were forced to retire or resign.

    Some alumni are calling for the withholding of donations until the college provides greater accountability on the way it handles sexual misconduct claims. Others are calling for the removal of Dartmouth President Philip Hanlon.

    Dartmouth disputes that it ignored the complaints and says that it did a thorough investigation into the allegations against the professors.
