At Simon’s Rock, our passion for learning goes well beyond the classroom. You’ll be part of a community that learns from and engages with global leaders in fields ranging from dance to environmental law.
You'll hear what these leaders have to say, and you’ll connect with them in master classes, public lectures, and small-group discussions. Some events are annual traditions or part of a series, while other events reflect the ever-evolving interests and pursuits of our learning community. Each year brings new discoveries.
The Women and Leadership Summit, held at Simon’s Rock in 2017, connected students from Bard College, Bard Microcollege Holyoke, and Simon’s Rock with ground-breaking women leaders from western Massachusetts. The day-long program explored urgent questions about women’s role in contemporary politics and everyday life.
The South Berkshire Concert Series attracts renowned and emerging performers from around the world who represent a dynamic variety of traditional and inventive programming. Launched over 45 years ago at Simon’s Rock, the series epitomizes the college’s commitment to intellectual dialogue, creative expression, and service to community.
