Dr. Sarah Sultan is the president of Night Vale Community College. She is also a smooth, fist-sized river rock.
In an announcement about the college Capital Campaign, President Sultan revealed that she can communicate by sending telepathic messages, including feigned coughs. She expressed her support for the study of all the sciences, except astronomy, because, as she stated under the cover of pretended coughing, "Nobody cares about astronomy." The rabbits donated to the Capital Campaign were reported to have broken into Sultan's office and licked her viciously for several minutes before her administrative assistant freed her.
When asked about the fringe views of adjunct archeology professor Harrison Kip, she replied by writing, "No comment." She also drew an insulting caricature of Night Vale Community Radio reporter Cecil Palmer, who described it as "hurtful and unnecessary."
During the revolt against StrexCorp, Sarah Sultan had Leann Hart hurl her at some StrexCorp workers. The two of them successfully defended an angel who bore a remarkable resemblance to the recently ascended Marcus Vanston.
