We encourage academic departments and student organizations to organize lectures, brown bag discussions, performances, and classroom visits featuring international scholars.
The University of Richmond welcomes international scholars and staff from around the world each year. All five schools at the University actively recruit international scholars in varying disciplines to conduct research and teach courses.
The University values these scholars not only for their contributions in their academic expertise, but for the international perspectives they provide to the University and the greater community through lectures, readings, performances, and in-depth discussions with faculty and students alike.
Upon completion of his/her stay at the University of Richmond, the visiting scholar is expected to submit a report to Shani Buchholz in the Office of International Education, which should include the following information:
- Courses taught and other activities in which the visitor participated
- Topics on which the visitor taught/gave presentations
- Number of students in courses and lecture, and faculty involved in the visitor's stay
- Future plans for engagement with the University of Richmond or any particular faculty and students
