Mount Holyoke College Implements Antiracism Action Plan

Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley is taking steps to address racial inequities on its campus by creating an antiracism action plan. Going into effect this year, the plan seeks to address the needs and concerns of its BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) students through new classes, training for faculty, and measures of accountability students can have with college leadership.  

Connecting Point’s Ross Lippman spoke to Mount Holyoke’s Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Kijua Sanders-McMurtry, and Angelis Liriano, a student at Mount Holyoke College to see how faculty worked with students to create this plan.
