Community-Minded

Students, staff, and faculty come to Smith from all over—with them, they bring a vast array of life experiences, spiritual and religious beliefs, and cultural ideologies. With such a diverse population, there are countless opportunities to expand our community and learn from one another. The Office of Equity and Inclusion, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, and the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life help foster this sense of community on campus, encouraging each and every member to flourish and celebrate their individual identities.
