Bill is the Scott Center’s Affiliate Humanist Chaplain. A Scholar-In-Residence in Environmental Affairs at Middlebury College and director of the New Perennials Project, Bill was raised in the Roman Catholic tradition and acknowledges its positive influences in his intellectual formation. But philosophy and humanism have been at the core of the fundamental assumptions guiding his life as a teacher, author, parent, friend, and citizen. Bill also plays piano in The Jazz Collective, and is writing a book that tries to make useful sense of his life’s journey called Jazz Catholic: A Journeyman’s Guide to an Improvisational Universe.
