About us
   

Our diverse individual and community identities, backgrounds, cultural, political, social, and economic perspectives together form Hampshire College, and transforms us into an active and passionately engaged community of active learners that values freedom with respect; a community that embodies social responsibility; and a community that values voice and agency.

Mission
The mission of the chief diversity officer is to provide leadership and advocacy in developing partnerships across divisions to promote inclusion, equity and diversity as central themes to the mission of the College. The chief diversity officer is responsible for coordinating and guiding all efforts to define, understand, assess, foster, and cultivate diversity as a fundamental institutional and educational resource. The chief diversity officer ensures that the College community understands and is in compliance with both federal and state laws and College policies with respect to equal opportunity, accessibility, and educational programs.

The main goal is to develop a climate that cultivates diversity as fundamental to the development of the educational and professional experience at the College. To achieve this I have three major areas or responsibilities: diversity and inclusion, equity of services, and programming and compliance.
