Dean's Welcome

Welcome new SPCS students!

The School of Professional & Continuing Studies (SPCS) is one of the five academic schools at the University of Richmond, each with a specific mission, but all united as One Richmond in a shared commitment to providing an extraordinary learning experience for each and every one of its students.

Our mission in the SPCS is “to enrich lives and careers,” and our particular focus is on meeting the educational needs of non-traditional students, mostly adults just like you. We serve these students by offering undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates along with various noncredit programs and services. All are designed to recognize and support the unique circumstances of adult students, which often involve juggling the demands of school with work, family and social and civic obligations.

The University of Richmond experience is special and unique regardless of your age or any other characteristic, and the faculty and staff in the School of Professional & Continuing Studies remain committed to keeping it so.

I am excited you have chosen SPCS and invite you to explore all of our rich offerings. I’d love to hear your story and add it to the story of the School.

Jamelle S. Wilson, Ed.D.
