Lillian Stevens manages the day-to-day operations of the vice president's office, oversees the office's general administrative function and serves as the university's Freedom of Information Act officer. With over two decades of service to W&M, she is widely regarded both internally and externally as OSIPA's go-to person.
In January 1992, Lillian was offered a position in the School of Business. After two years, she migrated from the academic side of the house to the administrative side where she has served three vice presidents in several progressive capacities. A writer at heart, she sometimes indulges her fascination with the university's brain trust by contributing articles to Ideation.
Prior to her work at W&M, Lillian served in several administrative capacities at Virginia's Department of Human Resources Management, Office of the Attorney General and the Virginia Department of Commerce where she was hired to be the Confidential Secretary to the Director.
In the private sector, her experience ranges from executive assistant to the CEO of a bank in Massachusetts to administrative assistant to the president of an accounting firm outside of Philadelphia.
Active in the W&M and Williamsburg communities, Lillian is a former president of the Hourly & Classified Employees Association and former co-chair of W&M's Child Care Center, the latter of which is an organization for which she actively advocates and fund-raises. Lillian has also served as W&M's representative on the Williamsburg Farmer's Market Board and is a volunteer for the local Combined Virginia Campaign.
