Muslimah Williams has been raised predominantly in Oberlin since age 6, but has also lived in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates. She began her career as a teacher in the United Kingdom, specializing in secondary education for ages 11-19. She earned a BA in psychology with a minor in religious education, from Ashland University. She went on to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at the University of Wolverhampton, concentrating in social sciences (psychology, sociology, and health and social care). She is beyond thrilled to be a part of the Oberlin community; it has been a lifelong ambition to work at this beautiful campus and support students to the best of her abilities, ensuring equity and advocacy.

In her spare time, Williams enjoys writing fiction and candle-making, and she has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. She has a deep appreciation for theater and music, which was instilled by her wonderful grandmother. She loves traveling with her husband, spending time with loved ones, and reading a great book with a cup of Earl Grey.
