Given the pressures and higher tempo of the last eight months, many W&M employees have struggled to find time to rest, refocus and plan. Therefore, the university is piloting a “planned pause” over the winter break. The pause will give employees the space to slow down, recharge and reflect.

Many companies, non-profits, and governmental agencies pause from time-to-time to accomplish a variety of goals that advance their mission. The activities undertaken typically include rest, reflection, assessment, innovation, professional development and planning. These pauses may involve shutting down for a period of time, lowering the tempo, day- or week-long training programs, retreats, celebrations and planning sessions.

The CGA has scheduled its planned pause for December 7-11th. During this time the CGA will be responding slower than usual to email as the CGA engages in assessment of the fall and planning for the spring semester. We appreciate your understanding.

Geographic information systems (GIS) are sophisticated tools to map and analyze geospatial data, and present results with visual power and clarity. Our courses are open to undergraduate and graduate students in any academic program. We also:

  • Consult with faculty about their research and ways to integrate GIS projects into courses
  • Provide access to advanced resources and GIS software (and the knowledge to use it)
  • Present events on all kinds of creative GIS approaches
  • Offer a Certificate Program for post-baccalaureat study

Have GIS questions for a class or research project, or looking for instruction? Contact GIS Support. To receive information about upcoming GIS and remote-sensing events at William & Mary, subscribe to our listserv. You can also visit our classroom lab in Swem Library.
