Queer Community Alliance Center
The Queer Community Alliance Center (QCAC) is open in Prescott.
The Queer Community Alliance Center (QCAC), located in Prescott, began as a student group, and in 1992 became an institutionalized part of the College. The QCAC is a part of the department of community advocacy in the division of student affairs. The QCAC is overseen by Hampshire College Queer Services, and strives to support a vibrant and intentional LGBTQ+ community by offering support and affirmation around gender, sexuality, and intersecting identities. The QCAC open hours are dependent on social coordinator volunteers. While classes are in session, the center is typically open in the evenings.
