Don't Miss This...

Richmond is a campus filled with opportunities to get involved and stay busy. Listed below are a few options which might make a difference in the quality of your overall college experience.

Community-Based Learning

In CBL classes, faculty design projects to respond to community-identified needs, and students work on that real life issue within the context of their course. This is just one of meaningful opportunities offered by the Center for Civic Engagement, where serving and learning off-campus and in the community is the priority.

Study Abroad

With advanced planning, any academically-qualified Richmond student has the option to study abroad for a semester or year through one of more than 75 programs around the world. Learn more about study abroad opportunities, and check out the information specifically for first-generation students.

Financial support for internship or research experiences

Thanks to The Richmond Guarantee, every Richmond student can access up to $4,000 to support one unpaid or low-paid summer internship or research experience. Find your opportunity, make your case for how it fits your academic plans, and UR may help fund it. Choose your opportunity (Career Services can help with this) and apply for a UR Summer Fellowship to fund it.

Living/Learning Communities and Sophomore Scholars in Residence program.

It's one thing to read, study, discuss and an issue in class; it's another to join a community where students live together in a residence hall, take a class, do research, travel off-campus, and become engaged in a topic on a deeper level. Students in Living/Learning Communities or the Sophomore Scholars in Residence programs at the University become engaged in the communty, have deep conversations, build friendships with a diverse group of students, and find mentors in dedicated faculty members.
