Dartmouth’s revised student disciplinary policy for charges of sexual assault, which requires that an independent investigator look into complaints and provides for mandatory expulsion in some cases of sexual assault, goes into effect June 19, the first day of the summer term.

In a letter to the Dartmouth students Wednesday, Provost Carolyn Dever and Dean of the College Charlotte Johnson, together with President Phil Hanlon ’77, and the deans of the faculties, announced the new policy, calling it an important component of the College’s strategy to address sexual violence and high-risk behavior.

“The policy announced today will provide for the prompt, effective, fair, and impartial investigation and resolution of complaints of sexual assault,” Dever and Johnson said in the announcement.

Graduate students in the Digital Musics Program recently traveled to Cologne, Germany to install their new sound installation, Singer. The installation was chosen by a jury to be exhibited in a public space as part of the 2014 ACHT BRÜCKEN | Musik für Köln (Eight Bridges | Music for Cologne) festival. This year’s festival title was “Im Puls” (“In the Pulse”).

Shannon Werle, Carlos Dominguez, Ezra Teboul, and Angela Kim—the artistic designers of Singer—won second prize in the Composition Competition For Young Composers. The competition asked for works that examine the clash between mechanical rhythm and human pulse within the context of the industrial production line invented 100 years ago. Singer is a set of conveyor belts with glass objects attached to its surfaces. As the motors turn the conveyor belts, the attached objects strike tuned metal resonators and roll across the ground, producing melodic, percussive, and rasping sounds.
