Richmond Home

Drawing upon faculty scholarship and expertise throughout the region, and the hundreds of students on our campus who are from Asia and/or have Asian heritage, the University of Richmond will spotlight Asia for our 2019 cross-campus celebration of International Education Week. Programming will include music, a “Backstory” podcast on the history of Chinese innovation, including the opening of relations with the United States in 1979, discussion panels, culinary samplings, lectures, films, and more!
