We respectfully acknowledge that Williams College stands on the ancestral homelands of the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohicans, who are the Indigenous peoples of the region now called Williamstown. Following tremendous hardship after being forced from their valued homelands, they continued as a sovereign Tribal Nation in Wisconsin, which is where they reside today. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.

The Williams Financial Literacy Initiative is now live!

This pilot initiative organized by the Center for Learning in Action (CLiA) aims to provide accessible resources to help all students improve their money management skills and overall financial well-being while at Williams and beyond. This website serves as the gateway to online training and additional resources to help students with their personal goals and to help their families and communities.

Experiential Courses
Experiential courses give students the chance to deepen their understanding of complex concepts and challenges. Opportunities range from teaching civic education to local middle schoolers to working with a team to build a 3D Printer.
Community Engagement
Our engagement programming encourages preparation, humility, mutuality, inclusion, reflection, and accountability. Nurturing relationships is the heart of this work.
Lehman Community Engagement

LCE works to help break down the barriers between campus and surrounding communities in the Berkshires to allow students and community members to learn from each other through equal partnerships.
