The following message was sent to students on April 27, 2024 from Vice President for Student Affairs GInger Ambler – Ed.

Dear William & Mary Students –

I have been following events as they have unfolded on campuses across the country this week. I imagine many of you have been, too. This time in our history can be challenging for some and unmooring for others. These events have also raised a lot of questions. 

As we head into this last week before finals, I thought it might be helpful to highlight policies and resources here that relate to the kind of activities happening elsewhere. Staff in Student Unions & Engagement, Community Values & Restorative Practices, and the Dean of Students Office are available for any questions you have.

Freedom of expression and belief are basic rights at W&M. With those rights come responsibilities including respecting the rights of others and living within our university policies. Our mission at W&M is teaching, learning and research. We must all work together to further that mission and to affirm our core values — especially belonging and respect.
