A student group at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. will host an intercollegiate conference on nuclear arms control this weekend.
About 100 students and faculty members from 30 colleges are expected to attend, Matthew J. Goodman, a member of the Hampshire Disarmament Coalition, the conference's sponsor, said yesterday. The conference includes workshops and lectures on public speaking, organizing on campus, and developing new curricula.
Plenary sessions with members of national anti-nuclear groups, notably Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Project for Global Education, are also on the agenda.
"We want to bring people together, and then have them go back to their own schools to organize and educate," Goodman said.
