As a public ivy, W&M fills a critical niche offering the intensive educational experience of the leading private institutions at significantly less cost to Virginians. W&M graduates think rigorously and synthesize knowledge from various fields, work creatively to solve problems, communicate effectively and make a difference as leaders in existing and emerging fields, making W&M a vital resource for Virginia and the world.
To deliver an outstanding public ivy education, we need outstanding people, and that requires salaries to retain and attract talented faculty and staff and financial support to guarantee access to great students. The William & Mary Promise enables the university to provide more financial aid for students, support for planned enrollment increases, and resources to recruit and retain the superb faculty needed to educate our students effectively and conduct important research.
