Board of Directors
Members of the Omohundro Institute’s Board of Directors determine matters of policy and have responsibility for the financial and general management and for resource development of the OI. The Board of Directors consists of eight members: six elected by the Board and two ex officio members (the chief academic officer of William & Mary and the chair of the OI Council).
The Council of the OI
Members of the Council are typically drawn from the academic community. Councilors advise the OI executive director and the Board of Directors on policy, programmatic, and professional matters of concern to the OI and serve on one of the Council’s three standing committees: the William and Mary Quarterly Editorial Board, the Book Publications Committee, or the Conferences Committee. OI Associates are annually invited to submit nominations for consideration by the Council.
In addition to permanent staff, the OI employs William & Mary graduate students each year. These students complete a rigorous training program and then work with OI editorial staff throughout the academic year. We also support postdoctoral fellows thanks to underwriting from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
