College Connection

The College Connection is lectures and panel talks from colleges and universities from Western New England, particularly from the Five Colleges in Western Massachusetts: University of Massachusetts Amherst, Amherst College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, and Hampshire College. This forum provides an opportunity for listeners to engage with researchers, intellectuals, poets and authors active within our academic communities.

NOTE: The lectures recorded for the College Connection are designed to build a public audio library of the western New England experience, and are not intended as news content, or endorsements by NEPR’s staff or Board.
