Williams Staff Committee

An elected body, the Williams Staff Committee (WSC) seeks to increase the visibility of staff on campus and to advance their role in the life of the college. WSC provides suggestions and input to the senior administration and the broader college community, contributes to the richness of our community, and to the college’s mission of providing the finest possible liberal arts education.

The Committee…
Brings ideas from the staff to senior administrators and in return, serves as a group that the senior administration may consult for staff input on college issues, excluding terms and conditions of staff employment.

Provides open and direct communication within the staff community.

Advises, as appropriate, on staff members who will sit on other standing and ad hoc committees that address issues related to matters of interest to staff.

Identifies other ways for staff to engage with each other, students, and faculty in an effort to promote community and to make staff a more visible, involved and recognized part of the wider college community.
