Where Our University First Began

On March 4, 1840, the Virginia Legislature granted a charter for "a Seminary of learning for the instruction of youth in the various branches of science and literature, the useful arts and the learned and foreign languages, which shall be called and known by the name of Richmond College." More than 175 years later, we are still challenging our students to pursue lives of purpose as part of the University of Richmond.Learn More About the College

A Positive Image of Masculinity

Richmond College strives to create a community of diverse and authentic men. As a men's college within a coeducational university, our charge is to help our students understand what it means to be a man in today's world, and to assist them in becoming the man they aspire to be. The core of the Richmond College experience is a shared set of values known as the Positive Image of Masculinity, which is a framework for our students to discover their own authentic brand of masculinity.More about Masculinity

Unique Programs

Richmond College programs challenge students to think differently about themselves, their communities, and the role that masculinity can play in our society. Whether it is hiking the Appalachian Trail, exploring Richmond's civic identity, or taking a stand against relationship and sexual violence, Richmond College programs engage our students beyond the classroom.Discover our Programs
