IR at Work: An Undergraduates Experience with TRIP

By Moria Johnson ’20 The Teaching, Research, and International Policy Project, fondly known as TRIP, was founded in 2003 at William & Mary and is probably one of the more obscure projects hosted by the GRI. One of the most frequent questions I receive about my research is: “what exactly do you guys do?” For […]

After the Surge: A Day on the North Anna River

The river was still falling at midnight, yet I went to bed confident that the North Anna River would be on the rise by morning. At 7 a.m., the U.S. Geological Survey gage at Hart’s Corner dutifully showed that the North Anna had risen by nearly 50 cm (20”) during the past six hours. The […]

Moesha Parsons '20: Past to Present
When Moesha Parsons ’20 received her acceptance to William & Mary in the spring of 2016, she couldn’t believe her eyes — she had received a full scholarship. Now, four years later, Parsons is celebrating another dream come true — graduating with her Tribe family and obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree. Parsons looks back over her journey from wide-eyed freshman, eager to take everything in, to self-confident, accomplished graduate.

Reflections from a Quiet Campus
Join President Katherine A. Rowe as she walks across campus and reflects on the impact of COVID-19 on the William & Mary community. As William & Mary has shifted from crisis response to operating under pandemic conditions, we are all adapting to our new reality. With adaptation comes the challenge to forge community in new modes and care for the vulnerability of others. We are also discovering new opportunities for creativity in teaching and learning and sustaining connections at a distance. William & Mary will emerge a stronger university for the extraordinary efforts this spring has called forth from all of us. We will bring those new strengths with us as we move forward.
