Public Lectures

The Class of 1960 Scholars Fund, established at their 25th Reunion, brings eminent academics from other colleges and universities to campus to engage with Williams students both in and out of the classroom, sharing their work with the college community in public lectures. We also regularly present additional public lectures during the academic year.
