VCU's Office of Student Engagement features programming and special initiatives that will enable students to get the most out of their time at VCU by helping them to overcome barriers to that success, and helping to poise them for success after completion of their degree.

While each program has its own distinct goals and benefits, all programs aim to:

  • Encourage students to explore opportunities to be involved within the MCV Campus,
  • Provide students with access to academic and social resources that contribute to their success in health professions/graduate school at VCU, and 
  • Connect students with a network of health care providers and community partners who support our mission.

Considering a VCU Office of Student Engagement program? Programs are listed down below. All programs are subject to change if necessary and/or at the discretion of their respective coordinating body.

Leadership & Development

We provide opportunities that will enable students to develop as a leader on campus and be able to have a positive impact on the community.

Student-Faculty Engagement

Students have the opportunity to engage with faculty and staff on the MCV and Monroe Park Camus outside of academics to building a long lasting relationship during and after.


Graduate-Professional Student Appreciation Week (GPSAW) is dedicated to VCU’s graduate and professional students who work day in and day out to become better individuals.
