Davis Center Reads

If you’ve sat in on any of our trainings or workshops, you might know one of our guidelines for conversation is to learn with and from each other. We say this to assert that everyone has something to offer and stands to learn something from others. This reciprocity contributes to the culture of intellectual rigor at Williams.

The Davis Center Reads program builds on this framework, as the DC staff works to stay up-to-date on issues of equity so we may best address our community’s needs. We encourage students, faculty, and staff to submit short readings addressing race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, socio-economic class, first-generation status, religion, and ability, amongst other identities. To facilitate this process, please submit a recommendation in the form below.


We will select one reading, which will be discussed during Davis Center staff meetings. Afterwards, join us for a monthly community luncheon on Thursdays at one of the dining halls to participate in the discussion. Check out our newsletter to learn more about what we’ve read, where community luncheons will be held, and know you don’t have read to join the discussion.


Looking forward to learning with and from you!
