Universities in Richmond
For more than 180 years, Spiders have come to the University of Richmond with the expectation to exceed expectations. We invite curiosity and questions, integrating hands-on experience to find answers … or more questions. As a top-25 liberal arts university, we celebrate the idea of a changing and evolving world, and we make it our mission to prepare Spiders to lead it.
The VCU School of Social Work was founded by a small group of Richmond citizens interested in improving the social conditions of Virginia’s urban and rural poor. Their efforts led to a training school for social workers, the first of its kind in the South.
