Mission Statement

Guided by the vision and goals of the Library articulated by the Dean of University Libraries, the Board's purpose is to seek to strengthen our resources and capabilities in our role as the central information resource for the College. The Board shall engage in these activities to achieve its purpose. 

The Board seeks new members who are alumni, spouses of alumni, parents of students and non-alumni who show a demonstrated interest in Swem and are willing to serve and make a commitment to the College of William & Mary.  Other factors that are considered include the ability and desire to make significant and/or consistent financial contributions to the College, one who will add to the diversity of the Board, one who can make a committment of time to serve on the Board and is willing to attend meetings in Williamsburg, and who work in industries relating to libraries. 

Board members serve one three year term (that is renewable for a second term). This board meets in Williamsburg twice per year and is vocal in its support of Swem and its priorities.  If you have an interest in learning more about board service and our nominating process, please contact our office.
