Images of Impact

Whenever faculty and staff are asked, “What do you like best about William & Mary?” The response is always, “the people.”

Images of Impact is a project that endeavors to capture and highlight the people of William & Mary – faculty, staff and associates. The stories are a way to remind faculty and staff why William & Mary is a great place to work, thrive and make an impact.

Directed by University Human Resources, the project is produced a few of our gifted William & Mary students: Ashley Huang, Bianca Sauto, Patrick Haney, Emmanuel Sampson and Alex Zhou. We will continue to add stories to this site, so if you have a story you’d like to share, please contact [[AskHR]] and put Story Idea in the subject line. We will do our best to tell as many stories as we can.
