Zak Moore notes the newest buzzword on college campuses in the context of Dartmouth's presidential search:
The first questioner, a student, opened with a question about sustainability. His concern the "future green leader of our Big Green." The manner of questioning and pre-planned question was very trite, and someone humorously commented to me that "hearing 'sustainability' today is like hearing 'proletariat' when I went to school."
BTW, Dartmouth alumni who would like to suggest names or criteria to guide our search can do so here. These comments are forwarded along to the trustees in due course and I know that I, for one, read them.
