Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Amherst is proud of its work to recruit, admit and enroll a diverse student body. We’re dedicated to creating a sense of belonging in our close-knit community.

Sustainability is a core principle that guides all of Amherst College’s operations—from the food served (and grown on our own campus farm) to the vehicles driven. With our Climate Action Plan, we’re aiming to achieve climate neutrality by 2030.
