Former Harvard professor Jim Yong Kim was inaugurated today as Dartmouth College’s 17th president. As per tradition, Yale and the other Ivy League schools (and many other universities) each sent delegates to the Hanover, N.H., ceremony. While University President Richard Levin made the trip two years ago when Harvard inaugurated a new president, it was Law School professor Kate Stith, a Dartmouth alumna, who represented Yale this time.
