A Message from President Biddy Martin to the Amherst College Community on April 17, 2020:
"We have continued to closely monitor the current coronavirus pandemic and its impact on our campus and local community. With your safety as our top priority, we have made the decision to cancel all activity and events on campus this summer, including all College-sponsored and other summer programs. We understand that such actions pose significant challenges and hardships for many of you, but with the health and well-being of all members of our community our top priority, and with the short- and long-term repercussions of the outbreak virtually impossible to know at this time, we find ourselves in the position of having to make difficult decisions sooner rather than later so that alternate plans, where possible, can be put into place."
