The plan seeks to create a campus free from sexual harassment and the abuse of power. 

Dartmouth today announced the creation of the Campus Climate and Culture Initiative (C3I), a comprehensive set of actions aimed at creating a learning environment free from sexual harassment and the abuse of power. ...

... C3I has as its foundation a report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), called Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The report is the first evidence-based exploration of the damaging toll of sexual harassment on both research integrity and retaining talented students and faculty. ...

... The campus climate initiatives, to be led by University of Michigan Professor Abigail Stewart, include a review of all academic departments. Stewart, a national expert in creating inclusive academic environments, will work with Dartmouth Professor of Engineering Vicki May, who is already engaged in the review process at Dartmouth.
