Earlier this week, seven of the nine lights on the menorah on the Dartmouth College green were shot out with what appears to be a pellet gun.

After more than a year intentionally stranded in the Central Arctic, a research icebreaker returned to her homeport last month in Germany.

The Multidisciplinary Drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate, or more easily said MOSAiC expedition, was a record breaker for both the trip itself and the huge amount of data it collected.

Researchers at Dartmouth College are studying ways that doctors can encourage more homeowners to test their private water wells for toxins such as arsenic.

New Hampshire has lots of natural arsenic in its groundwater, and is working toward halving its limit on arsenic in public water systems – joining New Jersey as the only states to differ from the default federal standard.

But as much as half of New Hampshire and the rest of Northern New England relies on unregulated private wells for drinking water.

This is a developing story and will be updated. 

A Dartmouth College graduate student says she is on a hunger strike in response to how the college has handled her allegations of sexual misconduct against a professor. 

A small group of Dartmouth students and community members gathered outside the college’s administration building Thursday afternoon to show support for Maha Hasan Alshawi, who wrote on Facebook that she began her hunger strike on July 14.

A federal judge says she is likely to give final approval to a proposed $14 million settlement in a class action sexual misconduct lawsuit against Dartmouth College.

In a hearing Thursday, Judge Landya B. McCafferty said it was commendable that both parties were able to reach a settlement in a case that had “highly-charged allegations.”

All team activities will be suspended immediately and 15 staff jobs, including eight coaching positions, will also be cut.

About 100 people attended a town hall meeting put on by Dartmouth College on Wednesday to update community members on a plan to improve campus climate.

The Campus Climate and Culture Initiative has been in place for a year and focuses on eliminating sexual misconduct and abuse of power on campus.

The initiative, which had been in the works since 2018, was rolled out last January after seven women filed a federal lawsuit alleging Dartmouth failed to protect them from sexual harassment and abuse.
