Virginia CommonWealth University
Virginia Commonwealth University has evolved since its founding more than 175 years ago, taking a number of names and configurations along the way. Their past has made them who they are — diverse, engaged and ambitious. VCU has a tradition of being first — a necessary practice when one is trying to provide the very best education in rapidly evolving times. They put one foot in front of the other, just like everybody else. They just happen to be one step ahead. Since its founding, the university has combined the traditional and non-traditional, embracing diversity in their academic programs, campus events, students, faculty and staff. They like to cross boundaries, not create them. They seek and support students who demonstrate intellectual curiosity, community engagement and creative thinking. They value the insights and culture that their international students contribute, while understanding the challenges of moving to a foreign country far away from home. The staffs at their Global Education Office are dedicated to easing the transition for international students and making sure that they succeed. Virginia Commonwealth University is a comprehensive, public university whose mission is to provide a fertile, stimulating environment for teaching, learning, research, comprehensive medical care and service, to promote the pursuit of knowledge, and, to disseminate professional skills. They are a premier urban, public research university focused on academic success. They take pride in their nationally ranked academic programs and academic medical centre, research and scholarly productivity, and engagement with the communities they serve and change.
