Monroe-Highland Commission

The Monroe-Highland Commission serves the President of William & Mary by advising the Executive Director and the university on strategic direction and the future of Highland. The Monroe-Highland Commission completed a master plan for Highland that was adopted in September 2016. It directs the continued discovery of Monroe’s legacy through research and restoration of the Monroe landscape. Our vision for the property includes Rustic walking trails, which opened to the public in April 2018. Our work at James Monroe’s Highland seeks to demonstrate relevance to wider public through diverse and inclusive historical narratives.
