Our Mission Statement

SPEC: Students Promoting Equity in Classics is a community of Classics and Archaeology students, both undergraduate and graduate, who are devoted to making the field more equitable and accessible. We recognize the white supremacist underpinnings, both historical and current, of this field and are dedicated to addressing these wrongs and developing an anti-racist department. We are committed to advocating and creating accessibility for Black, Indigenous, and POC students as well as students from other marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds, including but not limited to FGLI students. We will do so through collaboration with the department and the administration. We will work with the faculty and hold the department (both faculty and students) accountable for creating and maintaining an equitable environment. We uphold the spirit of the Bryn Mawr College Undergraduate Honor Code in our ideals and actions within SPEC through our Community Agreements.
