Reach out to the Alumni Advisory Group

The Alumni Advisory Group (AAG) exists to establish and nurture a community of alums who act as supporters and stewards of Hampshire’s mission, values, and philosophy. Through our initiatives, we develop and maintain mutually beneficial relationships between alums and the College. You can read more about the AAG and our members here.

At this critical juncture, the AAG has two roles:

  1. To act as a conduit that can bring the concerns, opinions, and ideas of alums to the board of trustees and the administration.
  2. To reinforce and build alumni community during this period of transition, and into the future.

The AAG is communicating directly with the board of trustees and the president, and wants to bring them your perspective. If you have questions for the Board of Trustees and President Nelson, please submit them or email alumniadvisorygroup@hampshire.edu.
