Application deadline extended! Applications due Monday January 27, 2020 at 11:59pm.
If you would like to learn about social justice and the environment, or are eager to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges, Root is the place for you. Focusing on identity, sustainability and social justice, Root provides students with the skills they need to become change-agents on campus and beyond. We are looking for enthusiastic and curious leaders to welcome the incoming class to the Root, EphVentures, and Williams communities.
