Associated Colleges of the South (ACS)

The University of Richmond is a member of the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS). The focus of ACS is to provide the best liberal arts education possible at the most affordable price available through a collaborative initiative that brings members together as a whole or in smaller groups. 

In August of 2018, UR hosted for the first time the Associated Colleges of the South Inclusive Pedagogy Institute (ACS-IPI). Facilitated by faculty and staff within the ACS, the workshop was aimed at improving teaching effectiveness and included readings, conversation, and instruction for how faculty can better craft their practices of inclusion. Faculty from UR and six other institutions (Davidson, Furman, Morehouse, Rollins, Spelman, and Washington and Lee) came together to critically consider what they do in and out of the classroom, why they do it, and how they can do it better to create the best learning environment for all.
