President’s Letter on Plans for Hampshire’s Future

"Last week, Hampshire submitted our progress report to our accreditor, the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). Hampshire remains a fully accredited college. The progress report was requested by the Commission after the events of last spring to demonstrate that we continue to be in compliance with two of its nine standards: organization and governance, and institutional resources.

We’ve made great progress in these areas. The college’s leadership is secure and our Board is strong. Together we’re leading a rapid, collaborative community process to reinvent Hampshire’s curriculum and student experience. We are actively recruiting new students for 2020. We’re leading a major fundraising campaign, to be announced in December. And we have sustainable, realistic plans for our operations and financial management.

As we told NECHE, our path forward is ambitious, data-driven, and achievable. The Commission will respond to our report by early December. I am confident in our plans and in Hampshire’s future." …’s-letter-on-plans-for-hampshire’s-future
