Town Halls & Important Dates

Williams has scheduled a series of virtual town halls for the campus community to learn more about our plans for the fall and to ask questions. Links and log-in information for each meeting will be emailed, and recordings will be made available on this page. All meeting times are Eastern Standard time. We welcome questions or comments via our comment portal.
