Working Group and Strategic Academic Initiative reports

This page archives the reports of the Strategic Planning working groups and strategic academic initiatives.

The reports are the fruit of extraordinary outreach efforts during Fall 2019: Hundreds of faculty, staff, students and community members attended related meetings and events, while hundreds more, including alumni, parents and families, submitted online comments and participated in phonecasts.

President Mandel and the Senior Staff used the reports as a guiding source in drafting the final strategic plan, a high-level statement of Williams’ aspirations for the next ten to fifteen years. They also serve as a bank of ideas for “operationalization”: the phase when the college will translate the plan’s strategic concepts into concrete, practical steps.
