William & Mary

Mission, Vision & Diversity

Reves Center Mission Statement

Our mission is to support and promote the internationalization of learning, teaching, research and community involvement at William & Mary. We do this through programs for education abroad, international students and scholars, and global engagement across the university.


Reves Center Vision Statement

We aim to further strengthen internationalization at William & Mary by:

  • Catalyzing international engagement and understanding.
  • Fostering a diverse and inclusive environment of respect and reciprocity.
  • Forging a network of global interpersonal and institutional connections.
  • Providing opportunities for global learning at home and abroad for scholars, students and staff.
  • Building a community of global leaders.

Reves Diversity Statement

Integral to both its mission and vision is the Reves Center's commitment to a college community that is representative and inclusive of individuals with different backgrounds, talents, and skills. Therefore, every staff member of the Reves Center is dedicated to supporting William & Mary's Office of Diversity & Equal Opportunity in its efforts to ensure that all faculty, staff, and students feel supported and affirmed.

In addition to having staffmembers serve on W&M's Diversity Advisory Committee and Diversity Think Tank Committee, the Reves Center has established its own Reves Diversity Committee, a permanent committee consisting of two members each from the Global Engagement Team, Global Education Office and International Students, Scholars & Programs, to address diversity issues within the Reves Center and in support of our various constituencies, and to explore ways to affirm and enhance efforts of the Office of Diversity & Equal Opportunity across the campus.
