At William & Mary, we hold the value of belonging among our most cherished ideals. In this pandemic, I count on each of us to affirm that value: it is our individual and collective responsibility to create a welcoming and caring community that embraces diverse people and perspectives. I join  in asking everyone in our community, near and far, to treat one another with mutual respect – and with compassion for the uncertainty and worry that we face together. Incidents of hate, xenophobia and racism have no place on our campus or in our communities and will not be tolerated.

– Katherine A. Rowe, President
