The initiative of a National Regional Network was adopted as a priority by the Board of Trustees and the President as part of the HWS2015 Strategic Planning process. There are two primary goals of the National Regional Network:

  • to virtually link our constituents (alumni, alumnae, parents, students, friends, prospective students) within each geographic region so that they understand they are part of something much larger, and...
  • to better connect our campus staff who are working with various constituents across the country in these geographic regions

An overarching goal is better coordination of our extensive volunteer efforts.


We have divided the country into nine (9) regions. Each of the nine regions has at least one "hub" city (key major markets where we have concentrations of alums, prospective students and activity). The regions are the following:

  • Upstate New York (Excludes Metro New York City)
  • Tri-State (Metro NYC, Fairfield County, CT, Central and Northern NJ)
  • New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT)
  • Mid-Atlantic (DC, DE, MD, NJ, PA, VA)
  • Southeast (AR, AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN)
  • Midwest (IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, MI, MN, MO, NE, ND, OH, SD, WV, WI)
  • West Mountain (CO, ID, MT, NV, UT, WY)
  • Southwest (AZ, NM, OK, TX)
  • West Coast (AK, CA, HI, OR, WA)
  • International


Each region has the following volunteer leadership teams:

  1. REGIONAL VICE PRESIDENTS (RVP): There are two vice presidents for each region, one William Smith and one Hobart. They are responsible for managing regional coordinators and communicating with campus staff managers, Regional Coordinators and volunteers. There are a total of 18 Regional VP's - two each for the nine regions.
  2. REGIONAL COORDINATORS: Within each region there will be representation for each of the major functional volunteer areas. These coordinators as a group (together with the RVP's) make up a Regional Steering Committee ( e.g. the Tri-State Regional Steering Committee). They manage functional volunteers (e.g. admissions) by region, communicating with campus staff and tracking goals and statistics. The Coordinators currently represent the following volunteer functions:
    • Admissions
    • Regional Programming
    • GOLD
    • Career Services
    • Development
    • Parents
    • Trustees
  3. REGIONAL VOLUNTEERS: Under each set of Regional Coordinators are all of the volunteers who perform specific tasks related to specific functions (e.g. admissions interviews, career event hosts, etc.)
  4. In addition to the volunteers in the region, there are CAMPUS STAFF MANAGERS for each functional area. These staff members meet regularly on campus to collaborate. These staff managers represent the following departments:
    • Admissions
    • Regional Programming
    • Career Services
    • Development
    • GOLD
    • Parent Relations
    • President's Office/Trustees
    • Others to be included down the road: H and WS Athletics, Intercultural Affairs
