The College of William and Mary’s Board of Visitors extended College President Taylor Reveley’s contract through June 2017, unanimously approving a resolution Friday.
The Board added two extra years to Reveley’s contract, which was previously supposed to run through 2015.
“Taylor Reveley is a superb leader and the right person for the job,” Rector of the College Todd Stottlemyer ’85 said in a press release. “He guided us through a very challenging economy and worked hand-in-hand with the Board in developing a new operating model — the William and Mary Promise — that will ensure our continued academic excellence.”
Reveley has served as the College’s president since 2008. He was previously the dean of the Marshall-Wythe School of Law.
“William and Mary is already extraordinary, and we’re taking steps that will enable the university to become even more remarkable,” Reveley said in a press release. “It’s marvelous to have a hand in that effort.”
