This website was originally, in spring 2017, set up to house the Williams Values Statement. This statement was written by a group of Williams faculty and staff because we are deeply concerned about actions of the current US administration and its implication for many things we hold dear. We borrowed many ideas for the statement from MIT (mitvalues.org) and Harvey Mudd College. The statement is not an official statement of and by Williams College, but rather a statement by many individuals affiliated with the College.

In September 2017, we added the Supporting All of Our Students statement. This statement was a response to an opinion piece in the Williams Record, and was drafted with help from many faculty and staff. It was also published in the Williams Record.
