Values in Action Award

The Values in Action Award for Recognized Student Organizations (RSO’s) has been created to recognize student organizations whose activities and initiatives exemplify William & Mary's stated values: Belonging, Curiosity, Excellence, Flourishing, Integrity, Respect and Service. These values are both reflective of and aspirational for the W&M community. The Values In Action Award (that also recognizes faculty and staff) was made possible through a generous gift from two anonymous donors.

Student Organizations are at the center of the W&M student experience. The Values in Action Award for Recognized Student Organizations will recognize up to five RSO’s each semester with a $500 award for the way in which the organization(s) demonstrate and make visible our university values.  

Applications for the Spring 2023 Values in Action Award are due no later than Sunday, April 2nd.
