 The missions of the Arts & Sciences Graduate Studies Advisory Board, established in 2004, are:

 *Development/fundraising to increase graduate Arts & Sciences financial resources.

*Assisting in the building of a graduate Arts & Sciences community.

*Enhancing professional development opportunities for graduate students.

*Advocating for graduate Arts & Sciences within the W&M community.

 Arts & Sciences graduate programs are critical to the mission of the College of William & Mary and to the College's status as a research university. Graduate programs strengthen the undergraduate program by providing research and mentoring opportunities, and are essential in retaining approximately a third of the College's faculty members in Arts & Sciences.

 The Graduate Studies Advisory Board plays a vital role in advancing William & Mary's graduate programs in Arts & Sciences.

  The Board meets twice annually, in the fall and spring. Meetings coincide with Homecoming in October and the Graduate Research Symposium in March. Additional committee meetings are occasionally coordinated by teleconference.

Members make a meaningful annual financial commitment in support of Graduate Studies Advisory Board goals.
