Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey will join Amherst College President Michael A. Elliott for a moderated conversation in Johnson Chapel on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at 6 p.m.

This free event is open to Amherst College students, faculty and staff, as well as the general public. Due to limited seating capacity, there is a limit of one ticket per person. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis via the link below.

Gov. Healey’s visit will take place almost 60 years to the day after President John F. Kennedy came to campus to deliver a historic address on power, politics and public service at the dedication of Frost Library. The anniversary of Kennedy’s visit serves as a fitting launch for one of President Elliott’s strategic priorities for the College: a renewed commitment to serving the greater good. The initiative aims to rededicate the College to educating students for democracy, and building and promoting a culture among them in which their experiences at Amherst will prepare them for a lifetime of contributing to the greater good in their professional and personal endeavors. It seeks to build an open-minded community that makes room for both disagreement and connection–one that practices the kind of recognition and negotiation that the everyday life of democracy requires.
