Exploring UR’s History and Legacies

Building on strong student and faculty research efforts regarding the history of race, racism, and historically underrepresented groups at the University of Richmond, and in support of the goals in the Making Excellence Inclusive: University Report and recommendations, the Provost’s Office supports faculty from across disciplines and schools in teaching institutional history courses. Each spring, faculty can apply to teach a class focused on engaging students in our institutional history, including the history of the land we occupy, and its legacies and to take part in a related faculty cohort that will examine and share UR’s history and legacies. Between 2019-21, nine faculty have taught or are teaching inclusive history courses. Applications for 2021-22 will be available in the spring.
