International engagement at Richmond happens in the classroom, the residence halls, our vibrant city, and all over the world. More than 60% of undergraduates have experience abroad by the time they graduate, and 12% of undergraduates come from outside the U.S. From curriculum to daily practice to events, we encourage dialogue across cultures and work with faculty and staff to support teaching, research, professional development, and co-curricular opportunities.
Study abroad is an essential part of a University of Richmond education, the hallmark of which is a semester or year abroad. Richmond offers a complete portfolio of study abroad opportunities with options to study abroad for a semester or year through one of our more than 75 programs around the world.
The center of international activity on campus, the Carole Weinstein International Center is home to 12 departments and interdisciplinary programs, including world languages and geography. As a symbol of the University’s commitment to a global experience, the building’s central courtyard features stones from 48 countries encircling a bronze and stainless steel globe.
