We mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague Benjamin “Ben” Williams, former Goddard College faculty member, who passed away on October 21, 2023 at age 68. Ben dedicated his life to student-centered education, inspired by his early passion for birds and books. At Goddard, he helped countless students find their callings. Ben lived life to the fullest, always learning and sharing his knowledge. We will miss his warmth, humor and community spirit. Though gone too soon, his legacy lives on through the many lives he touched.
