The Opportunity

Smith College is a distinguished liberal arts college committed to providing the highest quality undergraduate education for women to enable them to develop their intellects and talents and to participate effectively and fully in society. Founded in 1871, Smith College opened in 1875 with 14 students. Today, Smith is among the largest women’s colleges in the United States, with over 2,100 undergraduate students from 49 states and 72 countries. An independent, nondenominational college, Smith remains strongly committed to the education of women at the undergraduate level but admits both men and women as graduate students.

The Smith Campus Safety Department was created in 2020 when it became a stand-alone department after separation from Mount Holyoke College. To better serve the Smith community, a new state-of-the- art dispatch center was built. The department is comprised of the director, an assistant director (lieutenant), two sergeants, two corporals, eight officer positions, and seven dispatcher positions.

The Position

Role of the Director of Campus Safety for Smith College

Reporting to the associate vice president for facilities and operations, the director will lead the department creating a strong team culture focused on building relationships, community engagement, and a community-centered approach to campus safety. The director oversees the functions of campus safety and the campus safety team, including warranted/sworn campus police officers and non-warranted officers who work as dispatchers/security staff. In addition, the director leads the response to campus emergencies, ensuring timely warning and community notifications as needed and in consultation with senior leadership, as well as administers the college’s RAVE emergency communication system. The campus safety department conducts investigations into violations of the college’s policies, assists outside law-enforcement agencies in their investigations of crimes on campus, and directs, organizes, and provides comprehensive campus safety and emergency response programs, including safety education, for the Smith College community.

The director will collaborate widely across the institution, working with various campus departments (e.g., Residence Life, Schacht Center for Health and Wellness, Dean of Students, and the Office for Equity and Inclusion) in promoting safety on campus and developing educational and informational outreach programs to maintain effective community relations and open communication. It is expected this new director will build strong, collaborative relationships with local officials by conducting joint training and the sharing of emergency preparedness plans.

The director oversees the recruitment, ongoing training, and supervision of the department ensuring that the campus safety team (officers, dispatchers, and staff) demonstrates behaviors consistent with department policies and the college’s mission and values. The director provides supervision and mentorship to officers and staff, manages the department budget, and periodically reviews policies, practices, and training to ensure the department maintains consistency when responding to the needs of a diverse community while respecting the unique culture of Smith.

History of the Position

Over twelve years ago, a collaboration between Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, and Hampshire College was initiated which resulted in the three institutions sharing a chief of police. While the colleges tried to make this arrangement work, the shared chief’s position was tenuous with nine individuals serving in either the chief or interim chief’s role over the course of ten years. The lack of consistent leadership and direction took a toll on the campus safety department’s morale and effectiveness.

In 2018, Hampshire College withdrew from this agreement, leaving Smith and Mount Holyoke. Then in 2019, after another short tenured chief, the colleges began considering separation and each forming their own department of public safety.

Smith College brought in an extremely strong interim director to help build the foundation for what campus safety could be at Smith. After a series of listening sessions, conversations, and much hard work this new campus safety department was formed in the summer of 202o.

Now, Smith is looking for a capable leader to continue to grow and transform the department. The department and campus community are excited to have a strong director in place to enhance the department’s service and programs while also increasing their value and respect within the community.

Institution & Location

An Overview of the Campus Safety Department

Through an equitable and inclusive model of service and outreach, the Smith College Campus Safety Department helps ensure that every member of the Smith community can safely learn, live, and work on campus in an environment of mutual respect and support. The Campus Safety Department commits to ongoing training and education on a range of topics, such as de-escalation, anti-racism, and community engagement, that are central to building trust and partnership with students, faculty, and staff across campus.

Department Initiatives

In a transparent, forward-thinking campus safety environment, the direction of the department must be visible. To further that end, the department provides this information to illustrate the initiatives being undertaken to strengthen both safety and trust on campus.

Highlights of Current Initiatives

  • Launched an independent, Smith-run, community-focused campus safety department.
  • Established the Campus Safety Advisory Group to provide community input and guidance on campus safety.

Current and Planned Initiatives

  • Training officers and dispatchers to positively engage with the community thereby building trust with students and other campus stakeholders.
  • Initiating State Accreditation Standards in order to have the department fully accredited.
  • Establishing a Clery Compliance Officer to rebuild the annual security report to better reflect the needs of Smith.
  • Implementing diverse training for all personnel to include not only annual mandated law enforcement training, but continuous training in anti-bias, de-escalation, mental health, and other pertinent and contemporary issues. Review the list of trainings attended on the Staff & Advisory Group page.
  • Partnering with Northampton Police Department for professional development.
  • Formalized a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for services and support in emergency situations.
  • Formalized a MOU with the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Department so that our officers are sworn in as special deputies with concurrent jurisdiction in Hampshire County.
  • Offering programs including, RAD/self-defense training, bicycle registration, engraving, and fingerprinting.
  • Providing other services to include motor vehicle jumpstarts, vehicle lockouts, safety transports/escorts, and room lockouts.


  • Hosting regular open houses to foster community engagement.
  • Partnering with Residence Life to schedule officers to have meals with students.
  • Officers can attend house meetings and meet regularly with student organizations such as SGA, House Presidents, etc.


Our philosophy is that we strive to make every interaction a positive one.

The mission of the department is strongly informed by the voices of the Smith community. Over the course of the spring 2019 semester, a Campus Safety Advisory Group (CSAG) met with more than 425 students, staff, and faculty in 14 listening sessions, three open forums, and a community playback meeting which resulted in a set of recommendations. Smith’s independent campus safety department and dispatch is located on West Street, which aligns with feedback that dispatch should be located at Smith and operated by staff deeply familiar with the campus and community.


A community focus will be manifest through such practices as additional biking and walking shifts to reduce the presence of police cruisers; programing to build community engagement; and the creation of a community advisory committee with seats for students to work with the department.

Our mission includes the following recommendations:

  • Continue to be unarmed.
  • Continue to be sworn officers, which requires a high standard of ongoing training in areas including de-escalation, crisis intervention, and mental health response, and reduces the need for local and state law enforcement presence on campus.
  • Reduce vehicle patrols on campus in favor of bicycles and walking.
  • Continue to refuse any voluntary requests to release any information regarding the citizenship or immigration status of any student, staff, or faculty member unless legally compelled to do so. Should the College be subpoenaed for such information, Smith will seek legal counsel before taking any steps to comply.

Institutional Background for Smith College

Smith College is a distinguished liberal arts college committed to providing the highest quality undergraduate education for women to enable them to develop their intellects and talents and to participate effectively and fully in society.

The college began more than 140 years ago in the mind and conscience of a New England woman. The sum of money used to buy the first land, erect the first buildings, and begin the endowment was the bequest of Sophia Smith. When she inherited a large fortune at age 65, Sophia Smith decided, after much deliberation and advice, that leaving her inheritance to found a women’s college was the best way for her to fulfill the moral obligation she expressed so eloquently in her will:

“I hereby make the following provisions for the establishment and maintenance of an Institution for the higher education of young women, with the design to furnish for my own sex means and facilities for education equal to those which are afforded now in our colleges to young men.”

Smith has changed much since its founding in 1871. But throughout its history there have been certain enduring constants: an uncompromising defense of academic and intellectual freedom, an attention to the relation between college education and the larger public issues of world order and human dignity, and a concern for the rights and privileges of women.

Today the College continues to benefit from a dynamic relationship between innovation and tradition. While Smith’s basic curriculum of the humanities, arts, and sciences still flourishes, the College continues to respond to the new intellectual needs of today’s women—offering majors or interdepartmental programs in engineering, the study of women and gender, neuroscience, film and media studies, Middle East studies, statistical and data sciences, and other emerging fields. Were Sophia Smith to revisit Northampton, she would no doubt find her vision realized, as students at her college prepare themselves for exemplary lives of service and leadership.

As a member of the Five College Consortium, Smith College offers student and faculty exchanges, joint faculty appointments, joint course offerings, PhD programs, combined library catalogues and borrowing privileges between Smith and nearby Amherst, Mount Holyoke and Hampshire colleges and the University of Massachusetts.

Northampton, MA


The Pioneer Valley is one of New England’s most beautiful and intellectually vibrant locations. The valley’s unique character draws upon the cultural, social, and academic presence of the Five College Community, as well as the spectacular setting of the Connecticut River amid the hilly terrain of western Massachusetts.


Northampton is aptly known as “Paradise City.” Residents of the Pioneer Valley enjoy the great natural beauty that surrounds the city, from the winding Connecticut River that defines the eastern border, to the gentle mountains of the nearby Mount Holyoke and Mount Tom Ranges.


Northampton offers a lifestyle rich in cultural, artistic, academic, and business resources. The downtown center is one of the most vibrant in New England. The superb quality of life in Northampton contributes to a strong and diversified economic base. Northampton is unique in the number of independently owned businesses that make up the business community.


Northampton’s blend of traditional neighborhoods, forged by the great care of generations of good neighbors, and a lively and sophisticated cultural community would make any great city proud. The city has been recognized in recent years by numerous publications as a top-rated town for the arts, for families, for historic preservation, and for outdoor activities. Located in the heart of the Five-College area, and home to prestigious Smith College for women, education has always been a priority here. Not only a great public school district but also a plethora of opportunities for lifelong learning in Northampton are found here.


Northampton has worked hard to blend the needs of a growing economy with many buildings of historic significance, and to honor traditions, retaining the historic character of downtown and the mill villages of Florence, Leeds, and Bay State. Northampton has been home to many generous and thoughtful individuals, whose legacies continue to inspire: Jonathan Edwards, Sojourner Truth, Leonard Baskin, Lydia Maria Child, Amelia Earhart, Calvin Coolidge, Sylvia Plath, and Richard Yarde, among others who have called this city home.


Smith College educates women of promise for lives of distinction and purpose. A college of and for the world, Smith links the power of the liberal arts to excellence in research and scholarship, thereby developing engaged global citizens and leaders to address society’s challenges.

  • Smith educates women to understand the complexity of human experience and world cultures through engagement with humanistic, social, and scientific ideas.
  • Smith creates global citizens, committed to participating in the communities in which they live and to stewarding the resources that sustain them.

Strategic Plan

In February 2015, Smith College embarked on an ambitious strategic planning process. In partnership with the Committee on Mission and Priorities (CMP), the President issued an open call inviting every student, staff member, and faculty member to offer their best ideas to position Smith for strength in the coming decades. The resulting plan, the product of 18 months of refinement and widespread, inclusive engagement, represents the collective aspirations of a community that cares deeply about Smith and envisions a bold future for women’s education.

The planning work took place in the context of significant changes in higher education, particularly in modes of teaching and learning. Inclusion, diversity, and equity, in all aspects of the educational experience, are recognized as fundamental to excellence. Faculty and students seek to move flexibly among learning contexts: large group and small, paper and screen, face-to-face and online. Institutions are building capacity for innovation and making. Pedagogy framed around complex, urgent problems—high-stakes global challenges that often lie at the heart of global inequities—holds the promise of transformative learning.

Strategic Themes:

  1. Face-to-Face Education
  2. Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity
  3. Experiential and Applied Opportunities
  4. Emerging Methods, Fields, and Pedagogies
  5. Complex, Urgent Problems

Kathleen McCartney, Smith College President

Kathleen McCartney is the 11th president of Smith College. A summa cum laude graduate of Tufts University, she earned master’s and doctoral degrees in psychology from Yale University.

Since assuming the Smith presidency in 2013, McCartney has led strategic advancements resulting in important new academic and cocurricular programs that are expanding opportunities for women. They include the Jill Ker Conway Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center; the Wurtele Center for Leadership; a design thinking laboratory; innovation grants for students, faculty, and staff to work on complex problems such as equity and inclusion; and a network for women C-suite leaders. She has launched important initiatives on college access and affordability and campus discourse.

McCartney has forged education partnerships that have resulted in new programming, including a MOOC, or massive open online course, on women and activism with edX, the Harvard/MIT platform. In 2016, Smith became the first liberal arts college to offer a major in statistical and data sciences, funded in part by the Mass Mutual Life Insurance Company. Forty percent of Smith women now major in one of the STEM fields, double the national average for undergraduate women.

Women for the World: The Campaign for Smith, which McCartney led to its culmination in 2016, raised $486 million, setting a record as the largest and most successful campaign ever undertaken by a women’s college. Notably, the campaign raised close to $130 million for financial aid, including 103 new endowed scholarships.

Under McCartney’s leadership Smith has engaged architectural designer Maya Lin to re-envision the historic Neilson Library in the context of Smith’s renowned Frederick Law Olmsted-designed campus. The $110 million project is scheduled for completion in late 2020.

Previously McCartney was dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE)—only the fifth woman dean in Harvard’s history—a position she held from 2005 through 2013. A signature accomplishment of her tenure was the creation of a three-year doctorate in educational leadership developed in collaboration with the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. She also developed a PhD program in collaboration with Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Other accomplishments include dramatically increasing fellowship support for doctoral students, establishing the Center for the Developing Child and forging partnerships with local school districts.

An authority on child development, McCartney has conducted research on childcare and early childhood experience, education policy, and parenting. She has edited nine volumes and written more than 160 journal articles and book chapters. Much of her research has focused on a 20-year longitudinal study of 1,350 children and their parents on the effects of child care, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, for which she served as one of 10 principal investigators.

A thought leader on issues of gender, education, and parenting, McCartney publishes essays and letters in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Inside Higher Ed, Worth magazine,, The Boston Globe, and The Huffington Post.

McCartney has served on a number of nonprofit boards, as trustee of Tufts University, director of the American Council on Education, director of the Consortium on Financing Higher Education, founding board member of edX, and director of the Bellwether Education Partners board.

As a professor at Harvard and at the University of New Hampshire, McCartney taught undergraduate and graduate courses on child development, statistics, social policy for children, social development, attachment theory, and early childhood education. At UNH, she directed the Child Study and Development Center, a nursery school and child care center for 140 children from six weeks of age through kindergarten. She continues to teach in professional education programs and was the founding director of HGSE’s Women and Leadership program for women in the K–12 sector.

McCartney has lectured and consulted all over the world. She delivered education policy addresses to the Ministry of Education in Chile, to the president of Mexico, and to policymakers at a UNESCO conference in Thailand. As dean of HGSE, she consulted with the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, on the establishment of a center for training school principals. She has spoken at Cambridge University, Japan Women’s University, East China Normal University, and an early childhood institute in South Korea, sponsored by the Samsung Foundation.

McCartney is the recipient of numerous awards. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Education, the American Educational Research Association, the American Psychological Association, and the American Psychological Society. She was the recipient in 2009 of the Distinguished Contribution Award from the Society for Research in Child Development. The Boston Globe named her one of the 30 most innovative people in Massachusetts in 2011, she received the Harvard College Women’s Professional Achievement Award in 2013, and the Boston Business Journal named her one of its Women of Influence in 2016.
