Board of Visitors

The Board of Visitors (BOV) is the governing body for William & Mary. The Governor of Virginia appoints individuals to serve four-year terms in the service of the university.

The 17 members of the Board of Visitors gather in Williamsburg several times each year to discuss matters of long-term planning and budget for William & Mary. The Board of Visitors meets on the William & Mary campus and regularly engages the campus community through its eight committees, and the alumni community through participation at annual and special events.

Upcoming Meeting Dates:
  • November 17-18, 2022
  • February 8-10, 2023
  • April 19-21, 2023

The meetings are open to the public, but there will be no opportunity for public comment.
