Carver-VCU Partnership

                The Carver-VCU Partnership strives to create a shared urban community with a commitment to improving the neighborhood’s quality of life including its health, community development, youth development, safety and neighborhood school, while extending the experience of the community into the classroom and the university. The goal of the partnership is to create a safe and nurturing community for everyone who lives, works and studies in the area.

Rather than viewing the shared physical boundary between VCU and Carver as a dividing line between an academic community and an inner-city neighborhood, the partnership establishes a collaboration that has positive outcomes for the neighborhood, the university and the city of Richmond.
