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.
