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 in Blow Memorial Hall and regularly engages the campus community through its eight committees, and the alumni community through participation at annual and special events.

  • February 3-5, 2021
  • April 21-23, 2021

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