We are the uncommon.
VCU is UNLIKE the rest.
We could tout big numbers like our $9.5 billion economic impact or the $1 billion in new campus construction or even the school record $400 million in research funding. But our impact is measured in much smaller increments — one student and patient at a time.
VCU’s unequaled combination of excellence, diversity, research and creativity makes success possible for every one of our 300,000+ “RAMily” members. And that makes us one of the most innovative universities in the country.
