Center for Community Engagement

Telling Our Stories During Reunion: Collecting Oral Histories of Community Engagement at Amherst College

Amherst opened the doors to the Center for Community Engagement in the fall of 2007.  Yet students have been engaging in communities near and far throughout the history of our college.  The CCE invites you to help us collect and tell our engagement stories.  During reunion, we invite you to stop by the CCE office to tell your story.  All we require is 15 minutes of your time and a willingness to think back in time. We will record your story and post a collection of stories on the CCE website for others to enjoy.  Recording times:  Thursday, May 27 from 9:00-12:00; Friday, May 28 from 9:00-12:00; and Saturday, May 29 from 9:00-12:00.
