An important message from President CrutcherWatch President Ronald A. Crutcher's message to the University of Richmond community.
"Knowledge of This Cannot Be Hidden": A Report on the Westham Burying Ground at the University of RichmondPresident Crutcher has shared the report, “Knowledge of this cannot be hidden”: Report on the Westham Burying Ground at the University of Richmond. The report stems from last year’s Presidential Commission for University History and Identity, which rightly challenged our community to tell a fuller, more inclusive history of the University.
Column: 'Understanding history to tell a more inclusive university story'President Crutcher recently penned an op-ed for the Richmond Times-Dispatch about our community’s work to tell a fuller, more inclusive university story, including the significant history of the land on which our campus now stands.
Students learn best not only when they’re challenged to tackle hard questions and engage viewpoints different from their own, but when they’re also taught to have these conversations in thoughtful ways. Institutions of higher education are uniquely positioned to model substantive and civil disagreement. Dr. Ronald A. Crutcherspeaking at the Global Forum on Higher Education for Diversity, Social Inclusion, and Community: A Democratic Imperative, in Rome, Italy
Our sometimes uncomfortable past can lead to conversations that point to ways forward.
One of the most important reasons I mentor is that it helps me better understand our students’ perspectives and needs.
