Our Mission

The collaborative modeling center @ Hampshire College is a physical space (on the third floor of Cole Science Center) and supportive community that focuses on interdisciplinary research and educational research containing mathematical, computational, visual, and/or physical models. Our goals are:

  • To build a community of faculty, staff, and students from a range of disciplines all committed to providing an inclusive, dynamic, and creative space;
  • To provide space and support to foster interdisciplinary research collaborations that involve mathematical, computational, visual, and physical models;
  • To develop innovative science and modeling curricula;
  • To increase the visibility and importance of quantitative skills at Hampshire College.
