BADA Response to “Freedom Budget”

 


BADA Response to “Freedom Budget”
 
Perhaps by now many of you have read or aware of the “Freedom Budget” as proposed by the AAM and a coalition of students at Dartmouth College.  Fundamentally it outlines the many unmet needs of diverse students which have been repeatedly raised for the past 40 years.  Uniquely, this time the coalition has shown great courage to present a set of demands with a timetable for response.
 
We are encouraged and supportive of the position, as we know many of us have participated on committees and task force for many years only to see the work shelved and no follow-up action.   One might conclude that this approach to diplomacy, has not valued  amongst the priorities within the College’s administration or trustee agendas.  This new approach is not abstract, but list a number of cogent opportunities which are present concerns and significantly effect the enrollment, engagement and  success of prospective students at Dartmouth.  Now is the time for these changes to be included in the strategic outlook for the College.
