About the Center
We work with community partners to critically engage with theories, data and experiences to improve interdependent aspects of community health.
We initiate, encourage, support, test and reflect on collaborative strategies and projects.
Named in memory of Jane Grossman Cecil ’50, the Jandon Center fosters opportunities for Smith students to engage actively with the community and practice responsible citizenship. Along with her husband and lifelong partner, Don, Jane was a leading philanthropist, co-founder of the Jandon Foundation (Jane + Don = Jandon), and a tireless advocate for education and champion of programs for meaningful change.
