Dear Amherst Community,
I write to announce the formation of the new Special Oversight Committee on Sexual Misconduct. I have charged this committee with making recommendations for improvements in Amherst’s efforts to prevent and address sexual misconduct on campus and beyond.
I am grateful to all members of this new committee, whose names are listed below, and I am particularly grateful to Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies Margaret Hunt, who has graciously agreed to chair the committee.
