CORAL represents a "center of gravity" for students, staff, and faculty to come together around enhanced accessibility at Hampshire. Coordinated primarily by OARS staff, CORAL opens avenues for communication between Hampshire community members and shares ideas and labor to address barriers on campus and educate one another about how we can all be a part of making Hampshire more accessible.
Visit CORAL on Facebook to see upcoming events.
If you are interested in being involved, email CORAL@hampshire.edu to share your ideas, or set up a time to meet with OARS Staff to hear what projects are in process, what roles you can play, and times to meet with other CORAL members.
