Former U.S. Secretary of Defense and William & Mary Chancellor Robert M. Gates ’65 will give remarks at William & Mary’s Charter Day ceremony at 4 p.m. on Feb. 8, 2013, in Kaplan Arena. Gates was invested as the College’s 24th chancellor at the 2012 Charter Day ceremony, becoming the first William & Mary alumnus in the modern era to serve in the honorary role.
The 2013 Charter Day ceremony, which is free and open to the public, will mark the 320th anniversary of the College receiving its royal charter from King William III and Queen Mary II of England. Lois Critchfield, a longtime friend of William & Mary and former CIA employee, will receive an honorary degree at the event.
