Still on the subject of the human mortar so important to William & Mary's success, we recently moved through a time of significant change in the senior leadership of the university. During the last year, our Board of Visitors chose a new Rector, Vice Rector, and Secretary. The university selected a new president (the 27th), a new provost, two new vice presidents, and a new law school dean.
This much change in the senior leadership of a university in a single year is unusual. It is even rarer to move through it as seamlessly as William & Mary did.
