Carol and Blair Brown Staff Excellence Awards

The Carol and Blair Brown Staff Excellence Awards Program recognizes staff members who, individually or as members of a team, have made an exceptional contribution to Hampshire College. In very special ways, these employees represent the spirit of Hampshire. They are shining examples of what Hampshire staff can be when they are at their very best.

Former chairman and long-time member of Hampshire College’s board of trustees, Blair Brown, and his wife, Carol, wish to recognize and provide encouragement for staff as they play their essential part in the Hampshire community. More than merely taking care of administrative tasks, staff honor the principles of the college structure of students, parents, faculty, alumni, administration, and curriculum.

No school or college can function, let alone flourish, without the dedication of staff. We recognize their dedication that has contributed to the growth of Hampshire College.
