Hampshire Calls Off Classes to Discuss Student Concerns

April 20, 2016

Hampshire College called off classes Tuesday afternoon to discuss issues raised in student protests. Students have demanded that the college sell off any investments in fossil fuels or private prisons. (The college says it has only the most marginal of investments in the former and none in the latter.) Students also demanded that the college improve the way it handles issues related to sexual assaults and racism on campus, and the college has pledged to review its policies and programs to make improvements.
