Claiming Williams depends on your ideas!
The Claiming Williams Steering Committee reviews proposals and provides logistical and (occasionally) financial support for activities that become part of Claiming Williams Day. These events should somehow relate to the 2021 theme of Claiming Williams, “From Racial Injustice to Restoration” and may involve artists, speakers, performers, and facilitators from many fields (literature, athletics, theater, art, politics, and others), both from within and outside the Williams community. (For examples of past proposals and events, see Archives.) The Claiming Williams Steering Committee reviews proposals and provides logistical and financial support for activities that become part of Claiming Williams Day.
Final proposals for Claiming Williams 2021 are due by December 11, 2020.
How to submit your proposal
Fill out the form, and the committee will review your proposal. The committee may have questions or suggestions for your event. We prefer events that are online-only, but would consider in-person events with proper safety precautions. Be mindful that in-person events should consider a hybrid model where folks off-campus can also participate. All events are only open to the Williams community unless otherwise specified.
Claiming Williams occasionally supports events that occur at times other than Claiming Williams Day. Contact the Claiming Williams co-chairs to find out if we can support your event.
