Hampshire College is offering admission to all New College of Florida students in good standing and to match their current cost of tuition.

Hampshire College says the move is in response to the continuing attacks on New College of Florida intended to limit intellectual exploration, turn back progress toward inclusion, and curtail open discussion of race, injustice, and histories of oppression. By committing to impose a narrowly politicized curriculum on New College, the newly appointed trustees broke promises made to its current students to support a self-directed, rigorous education grounded in a commitment to free inquiry.

Hampshire College says it is proud to stand with students who crave a progressive education.

“What is happening at New College of Florida is merely the most radical example of increasingly aggressive efforts to suppress meaningful examination of the realities of our society and curb the advancement of democratic ideals, aspirations that should be the mission of higher education. Increasingly, public institutions are a target for those trying to censor discussions of racism, white supremacy, gender identity, structural barriers to equity, and the reproduction of oppressive hierarchies. This doesn’t serve the students, it doesn’t serve democracy, and it certainly doesn’t serve the world those students seek to improve.”

“Hampshire College believes we should use our influence and resources to help elevate communities that have been disadvantaged, to provide pathways to a better life and more just world. This means employing the arts and humanities, in concert with the natural and social sciences, to apply our best thinking to the hardest problems. It means designing curricula that prepare graduates to confront the bedeviling and interconnected challenges our future presents, so they can do the work of changing that future. Hampshire College welcomes all New College students who want to be a part of an unbounded, urgent, and entrepreneurial education,” says Hampshire College in an online post.
