Community Advocacy

The department of community advocacy at Hampshire College promotes the well-being of the entire campus community; fosters connections across social identities and ideas; and engages in passionate and compassionate dialogue and programs. We support and provide resources for the holistic development of students with the goals of nourishing student initiatives; increasing awareness and appreciation of different cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives; and encouraging understanding and mutual respect as we actively work towards social change. 

Community advocacy incorporates multicultural and international student services (and the Lebron-Wiggins-Pran Cultural Center); queer services (and the Queer Community Alliance Center); spiritual life services (and the Spiritual Life Center); wellness promotion (and the Wellness Center); and women's services (and the Center for Feminisms).
