Diverse Scholarly Community

DiversityWilliam & Mary and the School of Education are committed to equality of educational opportunity and do not discriminate against students or employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age or handicap. W&M believes that future U.S. economic competitiveness depends upon our ability to fully tap the human resources, intellect and creativity of all segments of our population, especially in education careers requiring graduate-level training. This belief is reflected in the school's active encouragement of graduate enrollment by men, African American, Native American, Hispanic, Asian American and differently abled students, especially in educational fields in which they are significantly underrepresented.

The School of Education's graduate programs are designed to meet the needs of a diverse student population that includes full-time and part-time students, differently abled students, mid-career professionals responding to rapid changes in their respective fields, homemakers reentering the paid work force, and recent recipients of bachelor's or master's degrees preparing for advanced positions in the field of education.
