Student Group Meetings with Gina Maisto Smith

Amherst College has hired an independent and nationally recognized expert, Gina Maisto Smith, a partner at Ballard Spahr LLP, to review the college’s Title IX and sexual misconduct policies and practices and to provide recommendations. Smith’s review is ongoing.  

Smith met with several different campus groups in Cole Assembly Room of Converse Hall, taking an opportunity to listen to what they had to say and take notes. The group offered perspectives and  suggestions that will contribute to  the ongoing conversation. The information gathered about our culture will inform our policy development efforts.
A staff member from the Community Crisis Response Team was available to provide support as needed by any individual or group.
