Dwelling of the Gallant


The act of dwelling – taking up space and creating space for others – is the cornerstone of the college experience. For the women who first came to Williams, dwelling was an act of gallantry, an act of intellectual curiosity and an act of love. In celebration of the Bicentennial of the Society of Alumni and 50 years of coeducation, join us for powerful reflections and discussion among four Williams women who have charted fascinating personal and professional paths forward–
