Hampshire College Continues To Experiment With Education

Hampshire College

Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts – the liberal arts college known for educational innovations -- is marking its 45th anniversary.  Jonathan Lash is beginning his fifth year as Hampshire College president. Lash, a former president of the World Resources Institute, is recognized as an expert on solutions to global climate change.   WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Lash.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
