Dear William & Mary Community,
As you know, earlier today the Board of Visitors offered me the presidency of the College of William & Mary, without “interim” in the title. I have accepted and am deeply moved by the Board’s confidence in me and by the enormous support that has come my way from all corners of the William & Mary community over the last six and a half months.
We share a marvelous institution. I will do my level best for W&M. We are in this together, however, and the College needs the commitment of us all to move powerfully into this century. I look forward to working with you as president just as we have worked together during the last six and a half months while I was interim president.
