In November, Smith College announced the formation of an Admission Policy Study Group. The study group is charged with giving thoughtful consideration to whether Smith should change its admission policy to reflect society’s evolving understanding of gender. Its recommendation, and the board of trustees’ ultimate decision on this matter, will be taken in the context of Smith’s unwavering identity and mission sigmaessay as a women’s college.

We are committed to a review process that is both deliberative and inclusive. Therefore, representatives of the study group will host a series of virtual listening sessions in which you can share your thoughts about this important topic. These representatives will host several call-in opportunities to enable alumnae from various time zones and regions to participate.


Registration for these calls has now been closed.


If you were unable to participate in a call but would like to share your perspective, we online paper writer invite you to do so at the Admission Policy Study Group website. In addition to a feedback form, you will find suggested topical readings as well as information about the study group’s activities.
