Learn about the Multilingual Ambassador Program
The VCU Multilingual Ambassador Program, one of only five projects selected for REAL Challenge Grant funding as part of the 2021 REAL Grants Initiative, aims to connect multilingual students at VCU with multilingual students in Region 1 K-12 schools in central Virginia.
The Office of Enrollment Management supports the continued success of prospective student outreach. This includes working with local, regional, national and international partner organizations. Our team is committed to identifying barriers to future students to our School of Education academic programs, and collaborating across units to identify creative and sustainable change to improve the admissions process. Through strategic data analysis, student engagement and partner feedback, our team works to continually improve the admissions experience.
