Richard Bland College of William & Mary is proud to be the first college in the Commonwealth

to register as an Employer of National Service. As a part of this national program, RBC will have

access to millions of talented applicants who have provided service to our country through

volunteer service.

“Richard Bland College of William & Mary strives to hire highly-qualified and dedicated

individuals who will join the College’s team in advancing 100% student success” says President

Debbie L. Sydow.

The National Service is a federal agency, including programs such as AmeriCorps and Senior

Corps, made up of more than 5 million people who work daily to improve the lives of fellow

citizens through service. Volunteers focus their efforts on six key areas, including disaster

services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures and

veterans and military families.

Deanne N. Bell, Director of Human Resources and Compliance at Richard Bland College, says

the partnership is a “win-win” for both RBC and those who have served.

“Being an Employer of National Service brings intangible benefits to both RBC and the service

member and/or spouse. What RBC, and by extension the larger community, receives in return are

employees who are able to adapt to fluid situations, ready to support in times of crisis and have a

distinct desire to continue to serve their country in some capacity,” Bell says.

As a former service member, Bell also understands the importance of supporting those who serve.

“As a retired Marine Corps Officer, I’m proud to be a part of an institution that readily seeks to

support those who have served their country.”
