Lead By Example

As members of an academic learning community, we take very seriously our responsibilities to educate, innovate and inform. We are stewards of public resources and trust, and we are responsible for developing and educating people in an environment that is supportive, collaborative and safe. To achieve VCU’s goals, we must always foster an environment that celebrates all aspects of, and supports all members of, our university community.
— Michael Rao, Ph.D., president, VCU and VCU Health System
