Students elect a fellow student to serve on the Board of Trustees as a full voting member.
Hampshire staff are engaged in governance in two ways:
1. A Hampshire staff member serve on the Hampshire College's Board of Trustees for a 3-year term as a full voting member. This position is open to both supervisory and non-supervisory staff.
From the Board of Trustees Election Guidelines (https://www.hampshire.edu/presidents-office/board-election-guidelines):
"The board of trustees is committed to involving faculty, students, and, staff throughout its governance structure and operations. This includes having members from each constituency serve in each of the following capacities:
• Trustee Alternate (a student position)
• Member of the Academic Affairs Committee
• Member of the Advancement Committee
• Member of the Buildings, Grounds, and Environmental Sustainability Committee
• Member of the Committee at Hampshire on Investment Responsibility (CHOIR)
• Member of the Enrollment Committee
• Member of the Finance Committee
• Member of the Student Life Committee"
2. Staff Advocacy Committee
The Staff Advocacy Committee (SAC) advises the college administration on issues of importance to the staff. The committee works to provide staff input to college decisions and strategic planning efforts, and to suggest ways to improve communication between staff and the administration.
SAC meets twice a month and consists of eight elected members, the staff representative to the Board of Trustees, and a Notetaker. Please see "Bylaws of the Staff Advocacy Committee" included as "Additional documentation".
ALL Hampshire faculty members can participate in governance through Faculty Meeting. Indeed the Faculty Meeting has explicit responsibility to maintain the academic curriculum. Since there is full participatory governance, Hampshire does not have a separate representative body.
Faculty also elect a Board of Trustees member to serve a 3-year term as a full voting member.
No written policies, but we do engage with local residents when considering land-use decisions that might affect them. For example, prior to installing our 20 acres of ground-based PV arrays, we held an open meeting with residents and a meeting with local toen officials. Also, when placed land into a conservation land trust, we worked with a local land trust agency and local town officials.
