The Robert L. Gaudino Memorial Fund is a unique educational resource inspired by the work of a gifted professor, Robert Gaudino.
His educational and profound moral visions had a lasting impact on the lives of generations of Williams students. At the heart of that vision were experiential education, rigorous scholarship, and a respect for the different perspectives people bring to a question or problem. With insight, discipline, and an unfailing insistence on civility in discussion, Professor Gaudino brought students into contact with uncomfortable differences between their accustomed views of the world and alternative ways to see it. His work was done in the classroom and outside it, placing high value on improving the openness and quality of intellectual discourse throughout the campus.
