President Obama Has Called Education the 'Civil Rights Issue of Our Time' and students at Amherst College have responded by embracing the national education reform movement. The EDU unites passionate students in conversation about education issues - namely achievement opportunity, and equity - and engages the greater Amherst community with campus-wide events. This community of students, faculty, and staff will produce the ideas and leaders necessary to make quality education a reality for the students who need it the most.
