College Council on Community Policy

Campus Aerial


The Smith College Council on Community Policy is a broadly representative, deliberative group that meets to consider matters that concern the campus community. In its deliberations, and working in concert with others on campus as appropriate, the “College Council” addresses issues of common concern. Its mission concerns the well-being of the community — its capacity for collegiality and the pursuit of the commonwealth while providing an excellent education to women.
