The Advisory Council on Hampshire's Commitment to Anti-Racism
The Advisory Council met weekly throughout the summer and the fall semester. We invited staff from key areas across campus to speak with us about perspectives and struggles regarding an institutional commitment to anti-racism. We consulted with representatives from campus leadership and activities, the First Year Program, The Cultural Center, retention committee/admissions, James Baldwin Scholars Program, community outreach staff (CPSC, CYL) as well as leadership from the Smith School of Social Work, which maintains and institutional commitment to anti-racism.
By mid October, the Advisory Council defined the following areas and commitments to having them guide our recommendations. We received feedback on these commitments from participants during the week-long event "Looking Back, Moving Forward: Advancing Hampshire's commitment to anti-racism."
