If you ask people name their favorite aspects of life at Smith, chances are that they’ll say "the community." With a diverse student population from all 50 states and countries around the world, and faculty and staff members from all walks of life, the Smith community is one of acceptance, inclusion, and celebration. Three offices across campus—the Office for Equity & Inclusion, the Center for Religious & Spiritual Life, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs—together form the Equity & Inclusion Team, working together to ensure community members of all backgrounds can live, work, and study happily and authentically with the support and resources they need.
