Taylor Reveley is now set to serve as the College of William & Mary’s president through 2018.
Reveley, who has served as president since 2008, and the college’s Board of Visitors agreed to a one-year contract extension. His contract was set to expire in 2017.
“We are delighted that President Reveley has agreed to this extension,” said Todd A. Stottlemyer ’85, rector of William & Mary and BOV chairman. “His leadership in so many areas has been crucial to the university’s sustained excellence. The Board looks forward to our continued partnership and success.”
Reveley last received a contract extension in 2013, when the BOV added two years to the agreement that had been set to expire in 2015.
“It is an extraordinary privilege to serve iconic William & Mary,” Reveley said. “I look forward to continuing to work with the university community – students, faculty, staff, board members, alumni and friends – to make our university a place of increasingly powerful teaching, research and learning as well as place of abiding association and meaning for our alumni and friends.”
Reveley received his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University in 1965 before going on to earn his law degree from the University of Virginia. He also clerked for Justice William J. Brennan at the U.S. Supreme Court.
