Population and Development

The Population and Development Program (PopDev) at Hampshire College exists to change conventional thinking and policies about population growth that threaten reproductive rights, social justice and our environment. Our tools for change are research, facts, expert analysis and activist and educational publications, including a high school curriculum on international population issues. If students are interested in interning for PopDev, they should contact program director Betsy Hartmann at bhartmann@hampshire.edu . Together with the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program (CLPP), PopDev also helps organize the annual reproductive rights conference at Hampshire and is involved in CLPP’s Reproductive Rights Activist Service Corps (RRASC) summer internship program.
