Developing Community

Connections help build community. With the help of our Initiative Directors, STEP offers programs and events that support students - regardless of class year or prior experience - in building connections across the university and within distinctive populations.

Our commitment to community development is also evident through the services provided in the Center for Community Development (CCD). This is the Campus Living Thematic Area's resource center and creative planning space for our student leaders engaged in peer support within the residence halls and our transition programs or initiatives.

There's lots to learn about the student experience and STEP is here to help!

How can we help?

The Office of Student Transition Engagement Programs (STEP) is responsible for creating engaging transition experiences where students are empowered to optimally thrive at William & Mary — and beyond.
