Program Founded by Thaler Focus of BDN Article

The Bangor Daily News reported on an immersive program founded by Jeff Thaler, assistant university counsel and a visiting professor of energy policy, law and ethics at the University of Maine, that places Williams College students in the homes of Portland immigrants and asylum seekers. The experience aims to help students of the private school in rural Massachusetts gain insight into the lives of people who came to urban America for safety from persecution. Thaler, a Williams College alumnus who helped found the Williams-at-Home program, said families who host students also learn more about America and its culture.
