Hampshire opened in 1970, created when presidents of four distinguished New England colleges sought a home for bold, influential—even radical—ideas in higher education. Beyond Hampshire's own substantial academic resources, students continue to draw on those of Amherst, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, which together form the Five College Consortium.
