William & Mary

Message on the 2016 President's Report

President Taylor Reveley sent the following message to the W&M community Jan. 5, 2017 - Ed.

Friends,

Calendar 2016 is now history. From powerful teaching and research to transformative projects of bricks and mortar, there was much afoot at the Alma Mater of the Nation during the year just ended.

Over the past 12 months, an undergraduate and two graduate students joined a faculty researcher as co-authors on a paper describing the groundbreaking discovery of gravitational waves. William & Mary received the distinguished 2016 Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization, one of only four universities in the country to be so honored. And the sky above New York City glowed green and gold as the Empire State Building beamed W&M colors far and wide upon the launch of the For the Bold campaign there.

These are just a few of the highlights included in the 2016 President’s Report. This annual report includes a year-in-review video, feature stories, selected news highlights and a financial report. It also begins with a message from me.

Well into our 324th  year, William & Mary keeps pushing toward what we want to become, not simply what we want to maintain. I firmly believe this century will be the most productive and successful in our long history.

Taylor Reveley
