Amherst has taken a leadership role among highly selective liberal arts colleges and
universities in successfully diversifying the racial, socio-economic, and geographic profile of its student body. The College is similarly
committed to enriching its educational experience and its culture through the diversity of its faculty, administration and staff.
The Office of Human Resources serves the Amherst College community by focusing its efforts on
the College’s most valuable asset, its employees.
Amherst is among this country’s most diverse and selective liberal arts
colleges, renowned for its intellectual rigor, the quality of its student body, and the contributions of its alumni. Over the last two
decades, the College has redoubled its historic commitment to access and affordability with generous financial aid and aggressive
recruitment strategies. As a result, Amherst’s student body is one of the most socioeconomically, racially, ethnically, and internationally
diverse in the country. As diversity has increased, the quality of the students has also risen by every standard measure. Human Resources at
Amherst is at the end of a period of dramatic transformation in which it pivoted from a primarily transactional function into a strategic
partner for the College. The initiative included a complete restructure of the HR office, adding new strategic-focused positions, and moving
transaction-focused positions into a newly created Shared Services function.
