  • Presentation to The Trustees of Dartmouth College:A New AD in the Moving Dartmouth Forward Greek System

    Corporation

  • We, the Board of Alpha Delta Corporation, are seeking your support for:+ Our planned investment in and upgrade of an important property on campus, which we

    believe can help integrate the Greek system into Dartmouths Cluster Initiative.+ Dartmouth recognition of a New AD undergraduate chapter, buttressed with significant

    alumni and faculty support, aspiring to set the standard for Greek organizations in the Moving Dartmouth Forward Initiative.

  • Agenda

    + Alpha Delta Background+ New Values and Leadership+ Actions Since De-recognition+ The Path to Rejoin the Dartmouth Community

  • History of AD

    + AD has a rich history at Dartmouth. The original Adelphian Society was founded in 1799 and became a fraternity in 1843, and finally the local fraternity known as Alpha Delta in 1969. AD has had many notable members: Chief Justice of the United States, Pulitzer Prize winning Poet Laureate, Chairman of NBC, CEO of PIMCO, Founder of KAYAK, Captain of U.S. Olympic Rugby, CEO of the U.S. Olympic Committee, two Dartmouth Deans of Faculty, and the current President of Dartmouth to name a few. Some may connect AD with the Animal House caricature (screenwriter was an AD), but over 200+ years AD has largely made a positive impact on Dartmouth through our undergraduate and alumni members leadership in academics, community service, sports and service to Dartmouth.

    + A history of inclusivity: AD is unique amongst national fraternities in that our by-laws never contained discrimination clauses. Intolerance has never had a place at AD.

    + ADs have contributed in many ways to Dartmouth, but one thing we are particularly proud of is that out of our ~1,500 living alumni, 1,390 have contributed to the Dartmouth College Fund.

    + Members of our undergraduate chapter behaved boorishly and recklessly leading to de-recognition by Dartmouth in 2015. Soon after this our Alumni Corporation, which owns the property and controls membership in AD, changed its leadership. In consultation with the administration, ADs new alumni leadership suspended the AD undergraduates access to our property and new member recruitment for the first time in ADs history.

  • Agenda

    + Alpha Delta Background+ New Values and Leadership+ Actions Since De-recognition+ The Path to Rejoin the Dartmouth Community

  • New AD, New Mission Statement & Values

    + Mission StatementAlpha Delta is committed to deepening the Dartmouth intellectual and social

    experience for its members and broader community. First and foremost, Alpha Delta should serve the broader mission of Dartmouth by promoting academic achievement; creating a safe and inclusive social environment; and building a strong, diverse Dartmouth community.

    + ValuesAlpha Delta recognizes and promotes the following values: Brotherhood,

    Leadership, Diversity, Service, Inclusivity, Social Responsibility and Good Citizenship. Each value is defined in its own value statement (see appendix).

  • The New AD also has New Leadership

    + We have formed a new alumni board, spanning many class years and providing a mix of skills, and importantly including many Upper Valley residents and regular visitors to Hanover. We believe we can set a new standard for alumni oversight and leadership in a Dartmouth Greek organization.

    + We have recruited 3 faculty advisors and a fourth faculty member is on our board. Two of our faculty advisors are women. This faculty participation goes beyond what is recommended under Moving Dartmouth Forward. We believe we can set a new standard for faculty mentorship and involvement in a Dartmouth Greek organization.

    + With unprecedented alumni and faculty involvement, we believe the New AD undergraduate chapter will be guided to behave responsibly and extend the intellectual life of Dartmouth outside the classroom.

  • The Strong Belief of The New AD Board:

    + The behavior of undergraduate members must reflect positively on AD, its alumni members and, most importantly, Dartmouth. When it does not, we believe it is our responsibility to act to address the problem as the front line for Dartmouth.

    + More broadly, we think all Greek alumni organizations should make this front line role key to their partnership with Dartmouth in shaping the minds and character of young men and women.

  • Agenda

    + Alpha Delta Background+ New Values and Leadership+ Actions Since De-recognition+ The Path to Rejoin the Dartmouth Community

  • Since AD let down Dartmouth and our 1,500 alumni, the new leadership has tried to do the right things, in consultation with Dartmouth + Our undergraduate chapter behaved boorishly and recklessly leading up to its de-recognition in 2015.

    We take responsibility. The 1,500 living Dartmouth alumni members of AD Corporation should have provided better oversight.

    + When the chapter was de-recognized in spring 2015, our alumni organization woke up. We established a new alumni board in summer 2015. Since then, in close consultation with Dartmouth administrators, we suspended the AD undergraduates access to the house and new member recruitment, we enlisted several faculty advisors, we adopted a new Mission Statement, and we planned for a major renovation.

    + Our new board had frequent, collaborative dialogue with Dartmouth, culminating last fall in what we believed to be an agreed-upon path to reestablish a recognized undergraduate chapter no later than Fall 2018. The Vice Provost, who had liased with other senior administrators, indicated that if we continued to refrain from recruiting new members, after all 2017 members graduated (i.e. this spring), and after commencing our renovation, re-recognition could come as soon as Fall 2017.

    For reasons unclear, it appears that this preliminary agreement is now in question.

  • Timeline I: AD board takes proactive steps following de-recognition and complies with all requests of the administration

    Spring 2015Derecognition of AD

    undergraduate chapter for violating prior suspension,

    specifically by voluntary branding (which we

    deplore)

    August 2015 AD forms new

    alumni board. The Provost is assigned

    as our liaison

    September 2015Dialogue begins with

    Provost who makes clear we must suspend

    undergraduate operations to begin discussing re-

    recognition. We promptly do so

    Spring 2016 Multiple meetings with Provost, who proposes

    we adopt a new mission statement to embody the aspirations for AD

    that we have been discussing

    July 2016Provost approves new

    mission statement, suggests we add addl female faculty advisor,

    assigns us to Vice Provost of Student Affairs to begin work on a re-recognition

    agreement

  • Timeline II: We reach an agreement and then backslide to uncertaintyAugust 2016

    We meet with Vice Provost, outline steps

    taken and propose path to recognition. We recruit a second

    female faculty advisor. We offer regular social

    use of our house for the new South Cluster

    September 2016 Second meeting with Vice Provost leads to

    understanding that AD can re-open no later than fall 2018 after a

    major ($2m+) renovation self-

    funded by AD Alumni

    October 2016Vice Provost offers to speak at our annual

    meeting, promises to help facilitate our

    construction process with the town. We

    offer to house students displaced by the East Wheelock fire

    November 2016 After promising to arrange a meeting with the Hanover

    Building Department to help with our

    permitting, the Vice Provost does not follow through

    December 2016We request written

    support from Dartmouth for our

    renovation as agreed with the VP. We are told that our point of contact is now a sub-

    committee of the Board of Trustees

  • Agenda

    + Alpha Delta Background+ New Values and Leadership+ Actions Since De-recognition+ The Path to Rejoin the Dartmouth Community

  • The Path Back+ We feel strongly that a New AD undergraduate chapter within the recognized Greek system is in the

    interests of both AD and Dartmouth. Our mission is to be a standard-setting institution in the Dartmouth community. If there is no path to re-recognition, we will update our alumni on what has occurred and AD will pursue its mission independently of recognition as many are urging.

    + We see de-recognition and re-recognition of AD as a win for the Moving Dartmouth Forward Initiative. Without the de-recognition, AD would not have achieved this level of alumni and faculty involvement, which we see as crucial to sustaining a healthy fraternity. We have a great opportunity to renovate AD, physically and spiritually.

    + Precedents for re-recognition suggest all undergraduate members must graduate before re-recognition. This will occur for AD in June 2017.

    + While we expect to complete our renovation in 2018, we believe establishing a small colony with provisional recognition in Fall 2017 before re-opening the house with full recognition in Fall 2018 would allow us to supervise carefully the launch of the New AD and position it for sustained success.

  • De-recognized fraternities have followed a consistent path to re-recognition+ In 1996, Beta Theta Pi lost College recognition following several violations. Beta

    alumni were told by the Dean that re-recognition would occur in 1999 after the graduation of all current undergraduates. In 1999 the Trustees put a moratorium on new Greek houses during the Student Life Initiative. This along with negotiations between Beta alumni and the Beta national organization, caused the suspension of operations to extend until 2008. Beta was then re-recognized as a local fraternity.

    + In 2001, Zeta Psi was de-recognized for inappropriate newsletters. Zeta Psi continued to operate without recognition until 2007, when Dartmouth signed an agreement stating Zeta Psi would regain recognition after suspending operations until all current members graduated. The alumni shut down operations in winter of 2007, completed a renovation, and Zeta Psi was re-recognized in the fall of 2009.

    Zeta Psi time from suspension of operations to re-recognition: 2.5 years.

  • De-recognized fraternities have followed a consistent path to re-recognition continued

    + In summer of 2000, Phi Delta Alpha was de-recognized for arson in another fraternity. Phi Delt suspended operations until all undergraduate members graduated and renovated the house. Phi Delta Alpha was then re-recognized in Winter of 2003.

    Phi Delt time from suspension of operations to re-recognition: 2.5 years.

  • AD has quickly satisfied the key steps which have led to re-recognition of other de-recognized fraternities

    + All of the derecognized fraternities in the past 20 years have followed the same steps to re-recognition. AD has accomplished or is in process on all of these steps:1. Establishment of an active and responsible alumni board Aug 152. The shutdown of all operations: going dark Aug 153. The renovation of the physical plant, as needed target completion Aug 184. The graduation of all undergraduate members will be complete June 17

    + Establishing a colony of AD in Fall of 2017 with probationary recognition would be 2.5 years after de-recognition.

  • We have completed concept designs for a major renovation. We will self-fund this and can break ground quickly pending building permits

  • ADs renovation and expansion will:+ Enhance a prominent property on campus.+ Upgrade the residence to institutional grade, increase number of beds by 20%, possibly to include

    residential space for a graduate student advisor.+ Modernize the event space both to facilitate academic programming and encourage use by the South

    Cluster as we have offered.

  • We are seeking a Win-Win: A Win for the New AD and our alumni, and a Win for Moving Dartmouth Forward

    + We are seeking these commitments from Dartmouth:

    Provisional recognition of a small New AD undergraduate colony in Fall 2017 with a full recognition path in 2018, contingent on continued suspension of undergrad operations, commencement of our renovation, and meeting the standards of MDF.

    An agreement for Dartmouth to do what it can to facilitate zoning / building permits for our planned renovation.

    + We are committing to invest in the New AD and to make Dartmouth proud of it for the long term. We would view an agreement as a win for Moving Dartmouth Forward and would be proud to celebrate it as such to our alumni and the Dartmouth community.

  • Appendix: AD Mission Statement

    + Alpha Delta is a fraternal organization committed to deepening the Dartmouth intellectual and social experience for its members and the broader community. First and foremost, Alpha Delta should serve the broader mission of the College by promoting academic achievement; creating a safe and inclusive social environment; and building a strong, diverse Dartmouth community.

  • Appendix: AD Values

    In addition, as a Greek letter organization Alpha Delta recognizes and promotes the following values:

    + Brotherhood: The members of AD support one another in their scholarship, activities, and personal lives. The strength of the fraternity derives from the myriad and diverse accomplishments of its brothers.

    + Leadership: AD attracts leaders from a variety of organizations across campus. As an institution, AD plays aconstructive role in campus dialogue on issues facing the broader Dartmouth community.

    + Diversity: The membership of AD is broadly representative of the Dartmouth community, with a particular emphasis on attracting members from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented at the College or within the Greek system.

    + Service: Community serviceboth to Dartmouth and the Upper Valleyplays a fundamental role in the experience of its members.

    + Inclusivity: The fraternitys public activities create an inclusive environment that values the diversity of the Dartmouth community and welcomes participation by students and groups not affiliated with the Greek system.
