Invest In Me

Invest in student experiences

At VCU, we provide an educational experience unlike any other. Our students take a hands-on approach to learning, translating ideas into action to address real-world challenges while advancing their intellectual, professional and personal development.

The VCU Student Life and Learning Fund, part of the Invest in Me campaign, helps students afford opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom through enriching, career-focused civic engagement, travel, mentoring, internships, field research and more.

Your investment in these opportunities empowers our students to build on what they learn in the classroom by putting it into practice in the community.
