Community Advocacy and Restorative Practices

At the Office of Community Advocacy and Restorative Practices, we dedicate ourselves to collaborating with students to offer co-curricular experiences that support and celebrate a wide range of social identity experiences and cultures. We center our work on community building and coordinate advocacy and programming for S.O.U.R.C.E. (students of underrepresented cultures and ethnicities) groups, LGBTQIA+ students, first-generation students, low-income students, and other students of marginalized communities and experiences.

Our office strives to provide intersectional programming, leadership development, and educational resources. We promote the well-being of the entire campus community, foster connections across social identities and ideas, and engage in passionate and compassionate dialogue. We facilitate restorative practices, support, and provide resources for the holistic development of students while encouraging understanding and mutual respect as Hampshire College actively works toward fully realizing its anti-racist values.

The Office of Community Advocacy serves as the connection between four social identity centers here at Hampshire College: the Lebrón-Wiggins-Pran Cultural Center, the Queer Community Alliance Center, the Center for Feminisms, and the Spiritual Life Center.
