William & Mary’s next leader will need to embrace change while at the same time understand the university’s history, traditions and core values.
That was the theme of a discussion during the July 12 meeting of the William & Mary Presidential Search Committee.
“We need a president for the bold,” said Doug Bunch ’02, J.D. ’06, who serves on the Board of Visitors and the search committee. “We need to push the ball forward, and it needs to be done by someone with the energy and willingness to take risks but also with an understanding of what has come before.”
