Reflections on the role of a university in this time of crisis

President Katherine A. Rowe sent the following message to the William & Mary community May 31, 2020 - Ed.

Dear faculty, staff and students,

Words have been hard to come by these past weeks, as we listen to the anguish so many in our community are feeling. I write to share with you those words I have come to, thus far, reflecting on our values and the role of a public university at a time of great crisis. Knowing we have a long road ahead, I welcome your thoughts, in turn.

Stay well, 

– Katherine
