Everyone wants to be accepted for who they are. Respecting fellow Ephs is very important to us at Williams. Our entry system is designed for first year students to meet people from all types of backgrounds and experiences. All of our Junior Advisors are trained to understand issues that incoming LGBTQ+ students might be experiencing.

Our goal as an institution is to move beyond acceptance. We think the acceptance bar is often set too low. We strive to be a community where LGBTQ+ people can thrive! We are currently developing thriving metrics to assess LGBTQ+ students on campus. We will use these metrics and data to make Williams a better place.
