Letter from the Department of Theater and Dance

Dear Amherst students and the college community,

We are writing to express our strong support of the initiative and work of Amherst Uprising. We applaud the determination and generosity of the students in their efforts to create a more inclusive community. We believe that Amherst should be a place where students not only achieve academic and artistic success, but where we all explore and express the fullest measure of our humanity. We are absolutely committed to inclusion and respect in our classrooms and work spaces. We also recognize that more needs to be done. We join the efforts to build a better community at Amherst by bringing new attention to a multiplicity of voices in our artistic and curricular endeavors.


The faculty and staff of the Department of Theater and Dance
