I am Michelle Shaw, a 1995 Williams alumna, and I advise students and alumni about careers with a service-driven focus. I have had a career trajectory that reveals the very best of a liberal arts education.
Recently, I was reviewing the history of the founding of the College when I discovered this little known fact: Williams College started out as a tuition-free school. One might say then that Williams stands here today on a solid foundation of philanthropy and service.
Not to be outdone, many Williams students today carry on this tradition of public service and, in fact, recognize service as an essential component of their liberal arts education. The Careers with Social Impact (CSI) initiative is where passion and purpose connect.
