We're proud of President Ronald Crutcher, who is representing @urichmond tonight in New York at a kick-off event for partner universities of the American Talent Initiative and talking about the Spiders with former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg Philanthropies supports the ATI, which is a bold initiative to recruit and graduate highly qualified students from lower-income families. UR helped cofound the initiative with 30 other top universities across the country. #SpiderPride
