Hopefully her staff will make sure she is prepared to intelligently answer any question about Ewell Hall. (or was prepared, if the interview already happened)

Our leadership had better prepare to deal with this on our campus. Several Tribe athletes voiced their displeasure about some campus buildings' and encouraged renaming.

University of Texas athletes have released a statement saying they will no longer participate in recruitment activities until a set of demands are met, including re-naming buildings, dropping the school song “The Eyes of Texas” and educating everyone on the UT’s racist history. https://t.co/7N1XzeXysL

60 Minutes Features Katherine Rowe This Sunday
It's a hot button topic and I try to see both sides. King William and Queen Mary reigned over a nation that occupied, killed, and imprisoned Scots & Irish (my ancestors) but I'm not paying the price for that so it doesn't move the needle for me.

What concerns me most is the violence, destruction, and war on LEOs employed by some to drive change. This could, sadly, push moderates to be less empathetic to the BLM movement and even join the effort to oppose them.

When I see businesses burned, physical attacks, toppling statues with no safety protocols in place or legal right to do so, and overt bigotry, my blood boils. It's not helping.

So, petition W&M to change names and remove statues deemed offensive, but avoid criminal activity. That's the way to handle it.

Times change. Less than 100 years ago women couldn't vote. 100 years seems like a fairly recent time to me...1920, but it was a completely different time altogether. Slavery in the colonies started (based on historic estimates) in 1619 which is 400 years ago. Times change, but the scars don't go away. We really shouldn't talk about what we did to the Native Americans unless you really want to get upset, but that was deemed heroic for many years in the history books.

Sure, but it's just a few bad apples that are doing that.

A few dozen at W&M, sure. It's not just a few destroying property and hurting people across America. Entire city blocks have been burned out, entire blocks are occupied, and many dozens of statues & monuments have been defaced or destroyed. We need to look at this objectively if we're going to have an honest discussion.

RE: 60 Minutes Features Katherine Rowe This Sunday
This 60 Minutes interview sounds like a BLM setup. Why ask Dr. Rowe, in particular, about college reopening? On the other hand, some would say Colonial Wmbg encapsulates America's racist past. Every building, street, etc. was built by slaves. On or near campus, so many things are named after slaveholders or Confederate generals: Washington, Jefferson, Armitage, Henry, Barksdale, Randolph, Harrison, Ewell, etc. It would be impossible to whitewash everything.

Not to mention the whopping 7% total black W&M undergrad enrollment.

Which is about 1/2 of the percentage of African Americans in the United States and 1/3 in Virginia.

9% of the 2023 class is black. 7% more identified as multi-racial, and 4% of the class is unknown. 30% of all undergraduates are people of color, compared to 25% at UVA.

55% of the 2023 class is white. 72% of reported Americans are white.

W&M has fallen all over itself in an effort to increase our non-white student population.

Great opportunity for Dr Rowe to present herself to Big Academia - could be her chance to nab a multimillion $$$ job with an Ivy League or big time state university.

I get the impression this is purely addressing Covid-19 and nothing else.

Agree -- having graduated relatively recently ('15), I was very impressed with how diverse the campus was (of course, it can always get better); but relative to other VA colleges (e.g. UVA, JMU), W&M has certainly diversified itself.

Rowe shouldn't have any issues dealing with those types of questions in any potential interview.

Rowe is big on leveraging technology for learning. She's done a lot previously with digitizing archives, etc. My guess is that she will talk about how they were able to have remote classes, etc. leveraging modern learning and communication tools. This is a really big deal for William and Mary. I can't recall anything like this in my lifetime in terms of National visibility

Definitely worth $1000s of dollars of media value, perhaps $100K+ -- which we could never afford otherwise from a marketing perspective.

This is also the argument for having a nationally recognized/competitive athletics program (i.e. making the NCAAT or going deep into the FCS Playoffs).

Gates was interviewed on campus by CNN semi recently (last 10 years).

QEII was in Williamsburg and at W&M in 2007

but yes, having Rowe in this prominent spot is good publicity for our school.
