Upcoming Webinars

Making it REAL - Understanding VCU’s Approach to Learning

Dr. Erin Webster Garrett, Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs

This webinar will introduce you to Relevant Experiential and Applied Learning (REAL) at VCU. This will be full of useful information regarding how your student can gain academic-related experiences outside the classroom (think: resume building!). Some of these REAL experiences might include service projects, study abroad, research, performances, and more. These opportunities are available to students from their first year to their last year. It's never too early to start planning.

Exploring Summer Jobs, Internships and Courses

Dr. Daphne Rankin, Summer Studies and Special Programs

Samara Reynolds, Career Services 


Will your student be coming home this summer or are they interested in other opportunities? We will explore family dynamics when your student comes home for the summer as they are sure to have changed a little. We will also talk in detail about how your student can make the most out of their summer by pursuing a job, internship, or courses that will help them on their path to their ideal career.
