Enhanced Alumni Engagement

The University of Richmond will be central to the lives of our students and alumni.

It is essential to the University’s future that our students, parents, and alumni remain engaged in the life of the University. Our alumni have supported the University’s educational excellence and contributed to its growing national reputation. Enhanced alumni involvement in the life of the University and the lives of its current and future students will benefit all members of our community. Combining the knowledge, experience, and loyalty of Spider alumni with the curiosity and passion of current students, we will build a community characterized by lifelong learning, mentoring, and commitment to the University.


  • Create a legacy scholarship initiative that would allow alumni to help the children of other alumni who have been admitted to the University, but may need financial assistance in order to attend. 
  • Grow and enhance programs that link alumni with each other and link alumni and parents with current students for mentoring, internships, and professional opportunities.
  • Enhance opportunities for alumni and parents to engage in the intellectual life of the University, and showcase the creative and scholarly contributions of our community members.
  • Provide increased opportunities for alumni to engage actively with the University, whether they are participating in activities on campus, attending sponsored programs in their own communities, cheering on Spider student-athletes, or interacting through communications that reach them wherever they may live.
  • Inspire increased alumni giving to sustain educational excellence for generations to come.
