Marc had a deep commitment to social justice, mentoring student activists advocating for sweatshop-free Smith apparel, getting Coke off campus, and divestment, among other issues. He was a fierce advocate for his students, calling deans, arranging support services, and even helping out materially on occasion. He spoke up when he saw inequities at Smith, and he attempted to live as consistently as possible with his fundamental values.
