Williams in New York is an experiential education program that combines immersion in fieldwork with traditional scholarship and contemplation. It aims to help students develop critical, reflective habits of mind to carry with them into the world of affairs. Moreover, it provides a forum to engage alumni and alumnae in the ongoing intellectual work of the College, a milieu to stoke the unbroken dialogue between generations of Williams men and women.

In fall 2005, the program will have eight students. Students will live on the top floor of the Williams Club at 24 East 39th Street, between Park and Madison avenues. Seminars will be held at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York at 365 Fifth Avenue, only a few minutes away from the Williams Club.

The curriculum for fall 2005 consists of the following four graded courses:

·District Attorney of New York (DANY)
