Hampshire College staff, faculty and students marked the opening of the 2010-2011 academic year at the Convocation Ceremony held on Tuesday, September 7.
We are delighted to announce the promotions of Mia Kim Sullivan to CLPP Director, and Amy Crysel to Director of Operations and Finance. Marlene Gerber Fried will continue to work with CLPP in a new role as Faculty Director, overseeing the academic components of our programming. This new, shared leadership structure, which we developed over the past three years through our strategic planning process, affirms both our commitment to mentoring and developing new leadership, and the close connection between education and activism that is central to CLPP.
From the pueblos of Espanola, NM to the financial district of New York City, from the U.S. Social Forum in Detroit to the operating rooms of Mt. Sinai Hospital, summer 2010 brought RRASCs out of the classroom and into the world of working for social justice with CLPP's host partners.
