Permanent Position for a Social Psychologist at Hampshire College
Hampshire College states it "envisions a community known for practicing social justice as a goal of discourse, a responsibility of citizenship, and an accountable way to bring ideals to life in the world".
It is fair to say, the majority of students who choose to study at Hampshire College are here because they believe in Social Justice and hope to implement such principles in some form or another. Starting in Fall 2015, Hampshire College will not have a position for a Social Psychologist. Social Psychology offers the tools to understand individual behavior in a social context.
How are students expected and supposedly made "accountable" to advocate for Social Justice without the means of understanding what social justice entails?
