The Plan for Williams Hall

Located in the heart of campus, historic Williams Hall will be transformed into a dynamic center for the study of globalization. The integrated spaces will offer a crossroads where students will learn to see the world from a variety of perspectives and apply those perspectives to real world solutions in their fields.

Moving into Williams Hall:
  • Modern Languages and Literature
  • Religion Studies
  • Sociology and Anthropology
  • Office of Interdisciplinary Programs
  • Student Affairs
The juxtaposition of a global hub with student affairs is by design. Student services will regularly draw a host of students to the building that otherwise wouldn’t have reason to come through the door. The strategy ensures all students, even those outside of the discipline, exposure to global life at Lehigh.
