Guiding Principles

Our Mission

The mission of the Mason School of Business at the College of William & Mary is to serve the Commonwealth, the nation, and the global community both by offering high-quality educational programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels and by creating and communicating new knowledge.

We fulfill this mission through:

  • Building a Faculty whose research, teaching, and service influences students, business leaders, policy makers, and other scholars.
  • Engaging Students in innovative educational experiences to nurture creativity, to mentor high ideals, and to accelerate ambitions of leadership so that they will imagine the great business opportunities of the day and seize them.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Vision

The Mason School of Business values and actively nurtures an environment of diversity and inclusiveness where every individual, regardless of how we may differ – for example, but not limited to, with regard to race, religion, gender, ethnic origin, age, socioeconomic status, political preferences, physical abilities, sexual identity, or sexual orientation – is embraced, respected, and afforded the same opportunity to grow, to succeed, and to contribute to the Mason School’s success.

Our Values

As a global citizen and member of the Mason community, I embrace the following values:

  • Respect and responsibility for self and others
  • A spirit of generosity
  • A life dedicated to inquisitive learning and development

My words, actions, and relationships will demonstrate my commitment to these values within the program and throughout my life.
