C3 Summit

The C3 Summits convened undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty members, diversity officers, deans, presidents, and other members of the community to focus, for one weekend, on our shared mission and goals. The Summit also catalyzed energy to move forward with C3’s transformative ambitions. The individuals—over 1000 in number—who  participated in the past six Summits at Bates, Connecticut, Middlebury, and Williams Colleges – reported feeling energized by the knowledge and connections they built at these events.
