Student Experience

Not many people can say that by the end of their college career they established their own entrepreneurial venture in an effort to solve a social problem. Every George Williams College student graduates with this accomplishment—a feat that serves the local and/or global community, as well as his or her resume, future employer, and most importantly, inner character. 

Social entrepreneurism is introduced to George Williams College students from day one. The Williams Plan, our general education program, provides a sequential curriculum in the subject, culminating for every student in the launch of a personal social entrepreneurial endeavor. The issues students choose to address are wide-ranging and based on their own passions and experiences as they work one-on-one with members of the local community. What remains constant is the effect of these ventures: every one makes a difference.
