Richmond Home
Following the success of International Education Week 2017 and our campus-wide experience of "living Danishly," the University of Richmond celebrated South Africa Week from November 12-16, 2018. Themes of justice, reconciliation, commemoration, and environmental stewardship were explored during an array of campus programming that involved students, faculty, staff, and partners from South Africa.
