Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates ’65 will serve as the 24th Chancellor of the College of William and Mary, College President Taylor Reveley announced Tuesday.

“William & Mary is known around the world as an exceptional school which produces up and coming national and world leaders,” Gates said in a press release. “In addition to an outstanding education, William & Mary instills in its students a sense of duty to community and country. I look forward to doing all that I can to continue and build on these traditions.”
