Smith Hill Annex

Since 2012, we have been leasing a 1,000 square-foot space on Douglas Avenue with the simple purpose of fostering conversation between members of the College community and the Smith Hill community — resulting in increased mutual understanding and opportunities for collaboration. The Annex takes literally the challenge of public scholar Margaret Wheatley, who argues that, by “turning to one another” and engaging in sometimes difficult conversations, we can “begin to restore hope to the future.”

The Annex supports immediate, short-term initiatives like potlucks, speak-outs, exhibitions, and meetings. It also supports courses, workshops, and retreats of campus and community groups, and ongoing projects that serve campus and community. If you are interested in scheduling an event, please contact the Smith Hill Annex email. ​
