The Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Athletics has a tradition of academic excellence. Our student-athletes are expected to lead by example, and serve as a model to peers and the community at large.
We empower our student-athletes to celebrate, express and embrace diversity, which is among our core values. Visit the VCU Division for Inclusive Excellence for resources that span student support to women’s issues. The NCAA also offers a transgender policy and LGBTQ resource page. In addition, VCU is committed to providing an environment free from sexual misconduct, assault, harassment or any sex/gender discrimination that may violate Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and other state and federal laws.
The mission of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare and fostering a positive student-athlete image.
Promoting the personal growth of our student-athletes is important to us. Our workshops equip students with the skills they’ll need to thrive at VCU and beyond through training in career development, leadership development and personal development.
