Campus Consortium member

College of William & Mary

The College of William & Mary is the second oldest college in the nation and one of only eight “Public Ivy” institutions in the nation offering a superior education more accessible to everyone. It is where Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's first academic Greek society, was founded in 1776. It is also a cutting-edge research university that incorporates a unique Campus Consortium program that will serve as an example for others -- an alumni-donor supported initiative known as the Sharp Writer-in-Residence Program developed specifically to connect Pulitzer Center journalists with William and Mary students.

The Sharp Writer-in-Residence Program is tied together through a three-credit seminar for selected students who work with Pulitzer Center journalists as mentors. The students learn how to communicate to broad audiences beyond the academic world about topics they have researched in-depth. It also incorporates public forums to provide deeper global learning and storytelling experiences for all students.

The Roy R. Charles Center for Academic Excellence, which coordinates the Consortium’s program on campus, plays a key role at William and Mary in incubating and providing administrative support for interdisciplinary programs, and facilitating the departmental Honors program. William and Mary is the first college in Virginia in the Pulitzer Center’s university network. The partnership continues a several-year connection between the two entities: the Pulitzer Center has welcomed William and Mary students as interns through the College’s Washington Program and several graduates have joined the Center’s staff over the years.
