A W&L education is for life, and we have our loyal supporters to thank for ensuring our success today and for future generations.

W&L delivers excellence year after year, fostering dynamic, innovative and honorable leaders who make their mark on the global community.

More than 9,000 alumni, parents and friends supported the university in 2022-23, bringing their energy, passion and tenacity to help accomplish W&L’s mission. Generosity is powerful, and all you have to do is step on campus to witness its impact. Success is all around, inside and outside, and the far-reaching influence goes beyond bricks and mortar to change lives through a world-class education and opportunities that add up to the W&L experience.

The nature of philanthropy is personal, as are its rewards. The Annual Fund introduced directed giving last year to help more donors reach their philanthropic goals. Gifts directed to financial aid, academics, the arts, athletics, diversity and inclusion, student opportunities and those left unrestricted to support areas of greatest need allow us to provide unparalleled education and experiences, year after year.

21st Century Learning

Huntley Hall Renovation and Williams School Expansion

Washington and Lee鈥檚 Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics stands out among the top 20 liberal arts institutions as the only internationally accredited undergraduate business program. The number of students majoring in accounting, business administration, economics, and politics at 六合厅开奖现场 has grown significantly over the last 20 years, with nearly 50 percent of each graduating class earning degrees in one of these disciplines. To accommodate that growth and to provide a modern learning complex that supports this robust program, 六合厅开奖现场 plans to renovate Huntley Hall and build a new Williams School structure on Washington Street. These improvements will facilitate hands-on learning, accommodate the university鈥檚 hallmark small class size, and enhance networking and professional development opportunities for students.

Washington and Lee seeks to expand the Student Health and Counseling Center, consolidating medical practice, counseling and psychiatry services in one location, to support a team approach to caring for students in a setting that is easily accessible.
