You text, we listen!

Outreach to students through the W&M&You app was started during COVID to get a quick pulse from students on key topics. The app is in the process of being reconfigured to be accessible through Blackboard and is expected to be operational during the spring of 2024.

W&M&You is an information-gathering tool for the Provost's Student Advisory Group and "5 Things to Know This Week" working group. By opting-in, users receive periodic texts from campus administration asking what they think, how they feel, or what they want related to a particular question.

How It Works

Sign up to participate, begin receiving periodic poll questions by text message and submit your opinion quickly and easily by replying to the message.

Privacy & Safety

Responses available to advisory and working groups are de-identified and anonymous to protect participant privacy. Registered user information and identifiable responses are confidentially maintained by IT. If a response triggers serious concern regarding the safety of a user or the community, staff will escalate the concern appropriately (which may involve connecting the response with an identified user and appropriate follow up action to protect life or safety).


W&M&You was originally initiated in Summer 2020, when the Provost’s Office and Student Affairs partnered with IT to seek real-time student input concerning pressing questions related to planning for the fall semester and beyond as W&M navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. In Fall 2020, W&M&You became available to faculty and staff. See past year poll results and project reports.
