William & Mary President Taylor Reveley released the following statement August 12, 2017 following violence in Charlottesville, VA - Ed
The images and reports from Charlottesville this weekend have been deeply disturbing and tragic for our Commonwealth. Freedom of thought and expression are central to a functioning democracy. Violence and hate are not. Bigotry has no place in our communities or on our campuses. The University of Virginia is very much in the thoughts of those of us at William & Mary.
