If you need to shorten a W&M-affiliated webpage's URL to share it in an email, on social media, or via QR code, you can use the URL Shortener tool. A QR code will be automatically generated for that link.

Graphic Design & Branding
The university Web & Design office is staffed with a team of professional designers who have a knack for making things beautiful. Their team produces custom artwork for dozens of compelling communications projects every year. Their design and consultation services are free to university departments and schools, but note that significant lead time is required, especially during busy times of the year.

A&S News

The A&S News feed is populated weekly with stories originally published on individual department, program and office newsfeeds. We also write news stories in coordination with W&M News, prioritizing those stories that are particularly relevant to Arts & Sciences. All news story ideas should be submitted to W&M News via the link provided above.

Email listservs
  • Read more about internal listservs at W&M.
  • The Digest for Faculty of Arts & Sciences listserv (fas-d) is an automatic listserv for all faculty of Arts & Sciences. It is designed as a tool for communicating information and should not be used as a forum for expressive activity. The A&S communications team coordinates a calendar of messages to the fas-d listserv to prevent email overlap and reduce email fatigue. We recommend reaching out to [[aschaefer]] if you have a message you wish to send to this listserv to coordinate the timing of your message. 
Communicating with Alumni
  • For department chairs, program directors and their administrators: alumni email listservs are maintained and provided by University Advancement. If you have questions about your alumni list, contact [[as-development]].
