GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Bard College at Simon's Rock recently announced the opening of the new Center for Equity, Inclusion, and Community on the college's campus on Friday, Sept. 16, 2022.

The Center for Equity, Inclusion, and Community (CEIC) is a campus-wide resource, with a particular focus on serving students of color and affinity student organizations.

The open house took place on Friday, Sept. 16 and students, faculty, and staff were welcomed to tour the CEIC and meet with fellow students and colleagues on campus.

The development of the CEIC was planned and implemented by the current Dean of Equity and Inclusion, Sarah Porter-Liddell, alongside many employees of the Simon's Rock Physical Plant. This was a one and a half years long process to renovate the Owl's Nest building into this new space and resource.
 
The CEIC was created with the need to find inclusion and home, in mind, for students of color and affinity organizations at Simon's Rock. Students can use this space for lounging, programming, conferences, and meetings. Additionally, with the Office of Equity and Inclusion located in this building, all students, faculty, and staff are welcome to the support and resources that the office can provide.
 
"I'm so excited that we have a functional space to offer to our students of color and their affinity organizations, and also to offer as a resource to our entire campus," shared Dean of Equity and Inclusion, Sarah Porter-Liddell.
 
The Center for Equity, Inclusion, and Community is also home to the Office of Equity and Inclusion.
