Temporary or Ad Hoc Committees

President's Commission on Institutional History and Community

Appointed by the President to lead us in an examination of how our history — and the ways that we teach, discuss and represent it — shapes our community. The commission will refine the scope of the work, determining how to involve interested community members and gathering input on the important questions that we need to examine. One such question is how we can best present our physical campus to take full advantage of its educational potential in a manner that is consistent with our core values.

Science, Society, and the Arts (ad hoc)

Science, Society, and the Arts Planning Committee (SSA) (ad hoc, 2015-2017) plans the March 16-17, 2017, SSA7 multi-disciplinary conference involving Washington and Lee students in the presentation of their academic achievements before an audience of their peers and the faculty. Conference participants may make oral presentations of research papers on traditional academic-conference-style panels, deliver research results in poster sessions, or present creative work. Students may also choose to participate in colloquia organized around common readings proposed by interested students and faculty.
