Title

Committee Makes Decision To Suspend Demonstrators Who Participated 'Overtly'

Description

This article by Robert Heitzman details the Faculty Committee on Administration’s decision to conditionally suspend Dartmouth students who participated ‘overtly’ in the demonstration against George Wallace’s speech in Webster Hall. In addition to hoping students who demonstrated would come forward to admit their involvement, the article remarks that the Committee recognized that “responsibility for the conditions which contributed to this disturbance is shared by the entire community. Accordingly, we invite all who feel shared responsibility to direct letters to the Office of Student Government making known their views...” Dean Thaddeus Seymour hoped such actions would “create an opportunity for a diverse campus to unify.”
