Get to Know Richmond

Richmond city landscape [View Image]

Combining the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the charm and convenience of a small historic city, Richmond provides an engaging backdrop for work, play and study.

DCE Staff Pick:

The Valentine Museum’s neighborhood walking tours explore the history and evolution of Richmond’s diverse neighborhoods. Go beyond the highlights and uncover each neighborhood’s best-kept secrets.

RVA History and Culture

The DCE encourages faculty to check out RVA History and Culture, a project with representatives from University of Richmond, VCU, Virginia Union University, Reynolds Community College, and the Valentine Museum. The group was assembled to develop a collaborative strategy to orient faculty to Richmond’s History so that they have context for their teaching, research, and community engagement and can develop authentic partnerships.
