He began teaching at Barnard in 1969, and had a reputation for holding back no tears when the discussion got emotional.

He received his bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University, his M.A.(in Political Science) from the University of Chicago, and finally his Ph.D. in political theory from the University of London. During lectures at Barnard, he mentioned spending time studying by Karl Marx's grave while he was at the University of London.

Joining a student hunger strike advocating a more multi-cultural curriculum, Dalton told a reporter, "I want the core curriculum supplemented by writings on Gandhi, King, Malcolm X. I want a change. I have been arguing with the people in the administration since 1969 about this and have been met by indifference. I would like some acknowledgment of non-violence in the Core."
