Community Partnerships for Social Change (CPSC)


The Community Partnerships for Social Change program is a resource for students and faculty who wish to integrate their academic interests with their social action / community-based experiences, forging a link between the classroom and the community. The program focus is on social justice and the development of long term meaningful community/college partnerships that foster respectful, reciprocal relationships between local communities and Hampshire College students, faculty, and staff. CPSC offers community-based internship and research opportunities, training seminars, a small number of competitive summer stipends for work with social change organizations, and a variety of resources to strengthen students’ social justice organizing skills. Students are encouraged to meet with CPSC staff for advice about making community work a central component of their Divisional work.
