The Days -Massolo Center at Hamilton College will be formally dedicated on Friday, April 1, during Volunteer Weekend. The Center, which opened on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, aims to promote diversity awareness and foster dialogue among the many groups on campus. It is named for Hamilton trustees Drew S. Days III ’63 and Arthur J. Massolo ’64.
The dedication and ribbon-cutting will begin with a reception at 5:15 p.m. The program will include remarks by President Joan Hinde Stewart, Chief Diversity Officer Donald Carter, Drew Days and Art Massolo followed by unveiling of the plaque inside the Center.
The Days-Massolo Center fulfills a recommendation in the college’s 2009 Strategic Plan to create a center that “expands the dimension of a Hamilton education” and that engages “students and faculty members from all backgrounds in an ongoing examination of their similarities and differences.”
The Center is located at 206 College Hill Road in the former Ferry Building adjacent to the Afro-Latin Cultural Center and across the street from the Sadove Student Center.
