Start Creating The World This One Could Be.
At Hampshire College, we always see more opportunity for progress.
More potential for connection. More possibility to build up, tear down, reconstruct, and make something altogether new.
WE’RE FACING GLOBAL CHALLENGES.
We have a responsibility to make that vision of a better world real. To do that, we have to solve problems no one has solved before. And that requires an approach no one has taken before.
SOCIETY REVOLVES. SO WE EVOLVE.
As the world spins, needs and interests shift, and pressing issues arise, new themes will rise to meet the challenge. You play a crucial part in setting those themes, and have the ability to change the course of our college and curriculum.
Propose new key themes.
Join your classmates and propose relevant key themes that are most important to you. Once approved, the theme is adopted by one of our Learning Collaboratives.
Assemble a Learning Collaborative.
Gather a boundless community of minds and resources to tackle a key theme. Learning Collaboratives are made up of faculty and students, mixing ideas, skills, passions, perspectives and expertise.
Never just an idea.
Engage your community, and get to work.
Students design and pursue experiential, hands-on learning opportunities that build community and uncover inventive ways to address critical needs.
