Welcome to the Office of the Vice-President for Campus Life. In collaboration with students, faculty, and staff across the College, our work is guided by principles of student self-governance within the context of the most diverse possible spectrum of people and ideas. We are committed to providing accessible and professional services in safe and supportive living and learning environments that work to strengthen community building by students campus-wide. We seek to encourage the development of problem-solving skills within a context of civil and collegial interdependence. We work with our colleagues in the Office of the Dean of the College to help students thrive at Williams, and to help you manage challenges that may arise in your time here.
We want our students to feel part of a community that values them as individuals, supports them as scholars, and prepares them for life outside of the institution.
The departments within this office are staffed by knowledgeable and caring professionals responsible for supporting students’ spiritual lives, your physical and mental well being, your engagement in the life of the surrounding communities, the buildings you live, study and relax in, the programs that support your residential life, your safety and security on campus, what and where you eat, your co-curricular activities and leadership opportunities, and much more.
Our department – and those of our close colleagues across campus – exists to help you make the most of all dimensions of your Williams experience – to support your intellectual growth, to expand your experiences beyond the classroom, and to help you navigate the challenges and opportunities you will meet along the way.
