Alumni Advisory Group

Alum-elected trustees Kim Saal 70F and Rebecca Holland 77F are helping create an alumni advisory group.

The new group will be made up of representatives across Hampshire’s alum constituencies and the hope is that members will act as “ambassadors” for the College and advise Alumni and Family Relations on alumni programming.

Supporting Professional Alums to Return to Campus (SPARC)

Through the SPARC fund, created through an anonymous gift from an alum, Hampshire faculty and student groups are able to invite alums back to campus to contribute to the academic program.

This year, Jeff Sharlet 90F, Leah Hager Cohen 85F, Beth Burstein 78F, Lucas Blair Simpson 03F, David Sherman 85F, Amy Goldstein 76F, George Bonanno 83S, Jose Fuentes 05F, and Timothy Wilson 72F are among those who shared their expertise and experience with students, faculty, and staff.
