Center for Student Diversity

The Center for Student Diversity is a hub for the coordination of a wide range of academic, personal and other services to underserved and/or underrepresented students, as defined by personal attributes including, but not limited to, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation and religion/spirituality. These services are designed to enhance the success of students both in and out of the classroom and to create a climate on campus that is inclusive and welcoming.

Inter-Cultural Appreciation Program

The Inter-Cultural Appreciation Program is designed to bridge William & Mary's international community and non-international community by promoting an appreciation of all cultures and promoting engagement among students from different cultural backgrounds. Interested students will soon be able to apply for this program, and the program will begin at the start of the Spring 2017 semester. 

The Roy R. Charles Center

The broad mission of the Roy R. Charles Center is to enhance the quality of undergraduate teaching and learning. Many of the Center's initiatives seek to fulfill this mission with interdisciplinary academic programs that straddle or fall outside the department structure in Arts and Sciences. In addition, the Center has a particular interest in recruiting and providing special academic, co-curricular and scholarship resources for academically distinguished students.

Some Charles Center programs that support student and faculty excellence are highlighted below. For more information, please visit the Charles Center website.

Undergraduate Research

The Charles Center connects undergraduate students with opportunities to perform in-depth, hands-on research of all kinds. In addition to serving as a primary resource for student research funding during the summer and throughout the academic year, the Center maintains Process of Undergraduate Research (POUR), a website dedicated to promoting undergraduate research by William & Mary students.

Scholarship Central

The Center functions as a hub of information and assistance for students seeking internal and external funding through fellowships and scholarships and administers the College's nomination process for major national scholarships such as Fulbright, Goldwater, Luce, Marshall, Rhodes, Truman, etc. Peer Scholarship Advisors (PSAs) are available to work with students throughout the application process.
