Campus & Community

In Fall 2019, a group of 11 Simmons undergraduate students began researching the lost West End. Supported by a “Humanities Research for the Public Good” grant from the Council of Independent Colleges, the students created a series of exhibits, including one for the West End Museum, one on Simmons’ campus, and a digital exhibit.

Like every institution of higher learning, Simmons continues to navigate the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, and faces important and complex choices about what happens next for our students, our faculty and staff, our campus, and our entire community. In the face of this reality, I am writing today to inform you that Simmons has an opportunity—and a plan—to ensure students can continue their journey no matter what happens this Fall.
