Established in 1986 with private funding, the Charles Center supports undergraduate research and high-impact, experiential learning activities. We like to think of ourselves as an incubator for promising new initiatives, working with students and faculty to bring their ideas to fruition. We connect across all the academic disciplines and create opportunities to expand learning beyond the William & Mary campus.
The Charles Center is the administrative home for William & Mary’s scholars programs, departmental honors, student fellowships, study away, and undergraduate research. We also provide support for the Center for Geospatial Analysis and the W&M Global Film Festival.
