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 both fall 2006 and spring 2007, the program will have eight students. Students live on the fifth floor of the Williams Club at 24 East 39th Street, between Park and Madison avenues. Some 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. Other classes will be conducted at the Williams Club.
