William & Mary Crim Dell Association

The Crim Dell Association is William & Mary’s identity group representing alumni dedicated to expanding the freedom to love and express gender and sexual identity. Our mission is to cultivate a vibrant community, expand opportunities for current LGBTQ+ students and allies and maintain a strong connection with the university.

A team of volunteer leaders from the Crim Dell Association and other alumni groups convenes throughout the year for Leadership Circles — focused, action-oriented discussions on how to better serve alumni in these communities and encourage engagement, leadership and philanthropy.

Asian Centennial Celebration Events
Asian Centennial Celebration Events

William & Mary will celebrate the Asian Centennial commemorating the admission of Chen Pu-Kao '23, the first student from Asia, and celebrate the contribution of the preceding generations of students of Asian, Pacific Islander and Middle Eastern descent during the 2021 - 2022 academic year. This auspicious milestone allows us to reflect on the onset of inclusion amidst the overwhelming exclusion of African Americans from matriculating in the university.
