ConnectED: General Education @ VCU

At VCU, general education is about building connections

  • Building relationships between students and faculty;
  • Connecting students to new interests and majors; and
  • Providing connections for students to the greater Richmond community and the wider world.

The ConnectED general education program seeks to provide a diverse student body with a broad base of knowledge and the intellectual skills to participate actively in a changing world. To those ends, courses in ConnectED challenge students to seek creative answers to complex problems, see connections between disciplines and between ideas, and develop an informed perspective on the varieties of human experience.
