The athletics department honors all senior student-athletes for their work, energy and commitment to their teams, their sports and the College. The event will also contain the announcement of department awards. Nine senior athletes will be honored for their achievements on the fields, courts, tracks, rinks and trails as well as in the classroom and as excellent representatives of their teammates and the College.
Williams College President Maud S. Mandel reached out to our community on May 31, 2020 sharing the following: “I am disgusted, saddened and angered by ongoing racism in all forms and places. Anti-Black racism in particular has a long history in this country, with daily implications for Black communities seeking justice and equality. Recent events have highlighted again how much work we still have to do as a nation to fight this scourge.”
The Williams College Department of Athletics shares these sentiments and urges our collective work, protest, and demonstration to support our march toward social justice. It is imperative that we come together to support our students, coaches, staff, and communities who are angry and hurting. We are committed to standing up against racism and to working to end racial injustice.
